Fade to Fog: A Photo Story

Hey California, what is UP with summer?

I hate to say I sorta miss the deep-fry temps of Palm Springs right now as I sit watching Food Network in my robe, flannel jams, and slippers!  It's damn cold.

Plus the wind we get around 3pm every afternoon has creeped up to visiting at noon and you may as well take the parka out of your vacuum-packed storage.

What's the smartest thing to do?  Go north.  Up the coast. Sure it's not warmer, but it's pretty.  And there's blue skies.

But, off in the distance...fog.

Creeping in, ever so slowly.

Photobucket
And, in a matter of...

Photobucket
...miles...

Photobucket
...the fog wanted to...

Photobucket
...swallow us whole.

And it did.

But, oh how gorgeous the coast is even in it's greydom.

Then staying here...

...and enjoying this the next morning...

...makes it all worth it. Fog and all.

    Having family in Southern California and living there as a kid I didn't realize how cold and foggy the San Francisco bay area can be. Hubby and I went there in December and while a bit chilly it was pretty nice for San Francisco weather.

    Spent a really cold July week in Monterey one year - they told us "you should have been here last week". But yes, it was gorgeous. I'm now in love with the Oregon coast, but we don't get there as often as I'd like.

    California definitely has some beautiful scenery. I've only been there once in my lifetime, but the pictures I took them will forever hang on my living room wall. SO pretty!
