Sometimes It’s Just Fog
Sometimes the Maine coast is simply about fog. It appears early in the morning and hangs around for about as long as it wants to. You’ll see and hear weather forecasts saying that it will disappear at 9:00 AM or 10:00 AM or even noon. Don’t pay any attention. It’ll disappear when it’s damn good and ready. On this particular day, the “forecast” was for clear, blue skies by 10:30 in the morning. This picture was taken at about 1:30 in the afternoon. While you can see sunlight on the light tower, it’s obviously still just a bit thick. It cleared about 2:00.
And that’s not bad. Sometimes it never clears at all. It just hangs around and you spend the day listening to the foghorns.
