I Dream of Coastal Nights

Dear Diary:

For some reason, the thought of "Coastal Nights" made me think of Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman, who starred together in "Casablanca" made in 1942.  It was my great aunt's favourite film and I watched it with her whenever it came on television. The movie was so romantic [at least to a young girl], that I wanted to act on the memory of that movie.  Consequently, I went for a retro look for the colour challenge this week.

The film took place on the coast of Morocco in the city of Casablanca, which now has a population of over 3 million people.  The city has a Mediterranean climate, warm and sunny during the day, with the coast being cooled by currents off the Atlantic Ocean.  As I look out the window at the piles of snow that I got on Friday, I AM dreaming of coastal nights!

Good Night for now.
