Back in January hubby and I spent several weeks on Hilton Head Island. We go every January. Some think it an odd time to go to the beach, but it beats whatever the weather is here in Ohio. It's generally warm enough to take walks, or ride bikes or play golf. Sweater weather or a bit more. Once in awhile fog will roll in about 4 o'clock. It's usually quite quick and doesn't last long.
This year however, we had days of fog. Literally 3 or 4 days in a row that lasted all day. It was quite bizarre. As you can tell, you really can't see the ocean. One day as I started out to walk from our condo (Marriott's Monarch in Sea Pines), I turned around and realized I couldn't even see the resort and thought I might not be able to find my way back.
This day's visibility was a bit better, but certainly not much by way of distance. The blue walk way was very helpful though as I was making my way back.
It was rather eerie I thought. You could hear people talking often but not actually see them until you were right up close. Not sure why we had so much of it this year, but it kept me from walking as much as I usually do. It kept me from bike riding as well. If you can't see where you're going...best not go. Now hubby still managed to play golf because the courses were far enough away from the ocean and they would clear.
I did a fair amount of knitting and participating in the resorts activities like playing Bingo and Trivia.

That's the kind of fog we get here. Can't see the house across the street.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day. ♥
Does it keep you from doing things cause you can't see where you're going? Thanks for the visit, always appreciated.Delete
There's something eerie about fog.ReplyDelete
Totally agree with you Liz. Thanks for the visit.Delete
I'm sorry you couldn't walk as usual, but glad you had other things to do. That looks so cool, though. I'd have camped on the beach all day, I think, and soaked in that eerie atmosphere. :) But our favorite seaside accommodations are very close, too, so getting lost is pretty impossible. ~nods~ Thank you for sharing and be well, my dear.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the visit, appreciate it. You stay well as well.Delete
Yes you are right, during the fog we cant even see the next step to us. And just because of this fog we cant run out our plans accordingly.ReplyDelete
The fear of falling as we age is real. 10 years ago I probably wouldn't have been concerned.Delete
