So, if you have been keeping up you know that Maine has fog. This fog is very interesting, it is thick as pea soup one moment and clear as a bell the next. Fog is created either by cooler water and warmer air or warmer water and cooler air, I am not sure which but the difference in temperatures creates the fog. We are staying on in Harrington and I can attest that as you drive around the temperature fluctuates around 7-8 degrees from place to place, again not really sure why, deeper water vs shallow water?? I understand the inland vs on the bay differences since the water temps are around 70 and air has been 65-82 recently, but why would one coastal area be clear and the next foggy???
Anyway, fog is a thing up here… To say the least, we have seen it so thick it moves inside the bus!!! With the windows open of course. But I just realized that people actually come here for the FOG. Who would have thunck. They are even having a Fog Fest about an hour north of here this weekend in Campobello, New Brunswick!!! Admittedly it can be beautiful, but it can really limit the views as well. From here forward I will have a better appreciation of fog and its beauty!!!
These are just random shots around the following areas: Mt Desert Island – Acadia National Park, Schoodic Point – Acadia NP, Sorrento (ME not Italy), Winter Harbor, Summer Harbor, Prospect Harbor, Jonesport, Machiasport, you get the picture. Cute and scenic towns connected by sparsely populated state highways and a lot of wild blueberries, hard to tell when one town ends and the next begins.
Fog example – These were taken at the (almost) same spot just before and after having a sandwich, the fog rolled in quick.
Always something new, loving it. PEACE AND LOVE TO ALL!!!
