The fog, mist rolls in

Usually here in our sunny city we wake up to beautiful mornings filled with sunshine and not too much heat...Yes, we do have many days of rain where you think you wil never see the sun again, but this is usually it: This is the view of some beautiful carnations that I found last week at the flower market. I am amazed at the smell of carnations here... a soft and sweet smell. They are sitting on my porch rail of my balcony.

Today we woke up and you would not even know that there is a vast ocean sitting across the street...
I am not sure if it is fog or mist...according to Wikipedia, "fog is a cloud that comes in contact with the ground.... and the only difference between fog and mist is it's density."
So here is my comfortable chair that I love to sit in the mornings. The day is just getting started when one can collect their thoughts, enjoy the moments of tranquility, listen to the ocean, see the sights if you choose, and relax with a cup of your favorite morning elixir...tea, coffee, juice....
But today, my thoughts are lost in this mist. I think that will be ok, let
me just relax and close my eyes, and there I can dream!
Enjoy your weekend, rain or shine, mist or sun...... at least we can always dream

Thanks for visiting my blog and Pink Saturday. I'm glad I found my way here to you.

I love your post for today because I feel the same way about the ocean. I spent most of my life living on the ocean or the Gulf of Mexico - until we moved where we are living now. We are about a two hour drive from the ocean, but I have to go there often. I need to be able to breath in the smell, and witness the awesome power.

Thank you for sharing.

We are having mist on the lake these cool Fall mornings. My DH says the lake is turning over for the season. Sitting on the balcony every morning watching the ocean...pure bliss.

Dear BG,

What a wonderful post... Spring has been nuts. My husband and I are spending the weekend in Penedo (South of Rio de Janeiro) and it is way too hot.....

How wonderful to have such a great place to relax and start out your day. I would love to wake up to the sights and sounds of the ocean, and even just hearing it thru the mist would be so calming.

Hello BG :) It's rainy here today, but we needed it. I love how the fog or mist rolls down the hills here. Usually we have bright blue skies here, too. I love it.
