This was yesterday's sunrise as it bounced off the sky looking north along the beach and then looking towards the sun as it rose in the sky. The pinky coral colour was very pronounced. The progression of the day in pictures went: Before Sun, Sun's Up, Surf's Up, Sails Up...
I was told by a boater yesterday that this is unusual to have such windy weather and such waves. He wasn't able to launch his boat because of the winds. There were a few hardy athletes out on the water.
I wondered about those trademark names like Kleenex and Windex as I was walking through the grocery store. Here's my answer:
An eponym is someone or something whose name is or is thought to be the source of something's name (such as a city, country, era, or product); alternately it can be used to refer to the name of something that is based on or derived from someone or something else's name. Albert Einstein is the eponym of the element einsteinium; conversely, einsteinium is an eponym of Albert Einstein.
