Advisory: Sea Fog

lifeguard stand at Fort Fisher state recreation area in North Carolina

Yesterday my family went to Fort Fisher State Recreation Area in North Carolina, in the Wilmington area. We wanted to hang out by the ocean in the unseasonably warm weather and test out a new kite that my sister-in-law and her husband gave the kids for Christmas. As we approached our destination my wife checked the weather and saw a special advisory statement for dense sea fog rolling in from the ocean. I don’t think there’s anything more alluring to an amateur photographer than fog, except perhaps decaying buildings.

I don’t have a whole lot more to say about this other than the kite was terrific, and the chill of the fog was an oddly welcome break from climate change’s late December spring temperatures.
