misty fog

The fog comes on little cat feet.
Carl Sandburg


The cooling, moisture laden fog is so soothing after the recent days/weeks of heat and smoke.


Couldn’t seem to get enough of it…






Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.
ā€•Ā Melody Beattie

  1. How are you doing with the smoke? It’s been mostly gone up here, and we have rain coming – real rain, finally – tomorrow and next week, so that should clean things up. I hope you’re due for rain too.


    • Luckily the fog came in and pushed most of the smoke inland. Good for us, not so much for the folks on the other side of the mountains. We just got back from a trip to Portland and it was quite smoky there. I haven’t downloaded the few pics I shot yet, but there was this scarlet sun the last evening we were there.


  2. The many moods of the coast is something one will never tire of šŸ™‚ There is something so perfect about such days as when fog rolls in ~ it is like a time-out, and the day can be spent just pondering. Wonderful shots and writing.


    • I don’t see how anyone could tire of the coast in any of its moods, but fog is especially welcome… more so now that it has pushed the heavy smoke away from us. Pity the poor folks inland though. Portland was thick with smoke as was much of the trip home on I-5. It’s been a very fiery summer. I’m thinking I’ll be glad when it’s over.


  3. This was so lovely and elegant, Gunta. I loved the quotes, especially Melodie Beattie’s. And your photos of the glorious fog and mystical beach scenes were artful and with peace. We, too, had a few days of fog and even a few drops of rain this week, and it cleared our smoky blazing air. Yes, such gratitude for this. Thank you, my friend, this was delightful.


    • The smoke here was simply awful. I normally love fog, but having it clear out the smoke added to that romance. As the pictures show, it was particularly thick and moisture laden. It sure helped here on the coast, but I suspect that it didn’t reach very far inland where they are still under some threat from this monster fire. I’m so glad you enjoyed the post!

    • It’s good you didn’t get the thunderstorms. They’ve worried about them setting off new fires. I certainly hope not!

      We didn’t get the heavy rain fall, but a serious mist for most of the day. The fog didn’t hurt a bit either.
