Ahhh...spring, when an islander’s thoughts turn to fog. That’s what I was thinking during our 9 a.m. walks on the boardwalk this past week. We don’t have a lot of fog on Prince Edward Island but we had some every day last week.
Fog is a genteel visitor, faintly covering the harbour on occasion, adding an element of beauty to the familiar Front Range Light. She adds a sense of mystery to the landscape on a beautiful sunny day, when she creeps onshore.
Other times, fog is ostentatious, blocking our view of familiar landmarks, as she asserts her presence.
Her long finger stretches forth in this photo from Saturday. Fog sits at the surface of the harbour, slowly stretching over the land she encounters.
The Indian Head Lighthouse at the entrance of the harbour knows all about fog.
It has endured all of her moves and moods for 140 years. Fog nor her sister ice are no match for this seasoned sentinel.
Fog adds another element of beauty to nature.
