The sea is a big part of the book. The sea is where mostly everything takes place and the old man spends most of his time. Fishing is the old mans passion and being on the sea is something that he is used to and enjoys.
Reminds me of a bad storm over the Atlantic. Fantasy: I would be sitting in front of my picture window, in my home on the beach lol, watching it roll in. I love watching God / Mother Nature at work! I just pray everyone stays safe.
