Fog: A Sure Thing


When you live on the coast of Maine, fog is a sure thing.  It may last for only a few hours or for a day.  Rarely does it linger longer, but it can which means staying inside and getting caught up on neglected chores or reading or working a jigsaw puzzle.

Here on Rockport Harbor, it is interesting to watch the fog’s journey.  Today it is creeping in from Penobscot Bay on little cat feet.

Left behind is a sky so blue that it makes the contrast between clear and mist even more dramatic.As the fog makes its way into the harbor, it begins to wrap the trees along the shore in a transparent veil.

It slinks above the boats rocking gently on their moorings

and makes its way to the head of the harbor where it outlines the vessels tied at the pier.

Gradually, the fog thickens hiding all hints of blue sky and shrouding everything in its path.

As I stand and watch the fog blanket the harbor,  all but that which is a few feet away becomes invisible. Whether it is here to stay or to disappear  soon only time will tell.  For now, it is intriguing to follow fog’s journey which makes me again marvel at nature’s mysterious ways.

i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind

  1. My husband and I enjoyed a beautiful honeymoon in Maine. The best part was the early morning fog and the world waking up. My favorite place was the lighthouse in Prospect harbor where we stayed several days.

    1. I enjoy the fog so long as it doesn’t last for days. I don’t know Prospect Harbor so I will check it out.

  2. Lovely photos. Nothing like the moodiness of a New England seascape to calm and inspire. Thank you for this.

  3. The fog comes on little cat feet… lovely photos and story. Makes me wish I was there.

    I love fog. Would sit on the beach surrounded by it the summer I lived on Nantucket Island, one summer in college. I also love the Atlantic. So wild and magnificent. Thanks for this. Cherry Kay
