F/Alphabe-Thursday

 Fog over Lake Ontario

F is for FOG

Sunday was hot, humid...and foggy. But that didn't keep some people indoors.

 Same beach, looking the other way

A few dogs demanded they get their walkies. Note that the guy in the foreground had a doggy bag with him. Good dog owner!

 Grandma with three grandkids

Kids needed some fresh air. (I'm thinking grandma might have needed it too.)

Sailing in the fog

And even sailors were out. The boat had just motored out of the harbour and the captain was about to raise the sails. This looks like a challenge to me - very little wind and low visibility. Hmmm. I don't get it...but I'm a land lubber.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

When it is too hot and humid I like to stay indoors or sit under the shade of a tree in the park. Those people on the boat might feel cool out on the water. Not sure as I'm a land lubber too ;-)

I love the first photo, the mist is so atmospheric

Andy said...

That's the only of kind of fog I like being in. Is this in Pickering??

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

I can almost feel the humidity coming from my monitor! Looks steamy, EG. :)

Pamela Gordon said...

Definitely a triple H day (hot, hazy, humid)! The humidity is gone here this morning and now it's just cool and damp and cloudy. It makes me want to stay in the house.

Kate said...

As a youngster I lived on the shore of Lake Michigan, got used to the fog, and still love it.

see you there! said...

Great shot of the boat in the fog. Don't know that sailing would work so well but it makes a great photo.

my favorites today are the second and third with people wandering in the foggy day... good guy with the doggy bag. not everyone is that good.

Taken For Granted said...

Good to be outside even if there is a bit of fog. Perhaps that sailor figures the fog will lift later in the day. I don't like sailing without visibility.

Jill said...

Foggy scenes are so serene. The sailboat really made me go ahhhhh.

Shammickite said...

many many years ago my husband had a sailboat on Lake Ontario and insisted on sailing in the fog, I was terrified that we would get lost and never be seen again!

I love the frist photo as well!

TexWisGirl said...

Kara said...

I love the fog. your water pictures are so pretty.

Lois Evensen said...

Beautifully peaceful. :)

ladyfi said...

I love the softness of foggy shots.

kelley jensen said...

I love the first photo and the last of the boat. I've never seen fog roll in off a large body of water. We occasionally get fog in the winter when there is an inversion.

Judy said...

I love that first image of the foggy landscape!!!
And everyone needs some fresh air... I tell the dogs that every day when I roust them out of bed!!

Karen @ away for the weekend said...

I'm a land lubber, also - but I do love watching the boats, and this is such a nice shot!

Sue said...

I love to sail, but not in that soup!

=)

RedPat said...

I love walking in the fog!

Lowell said...

A hot day at the beach means we stay in the air-conditioning - wherever that may be. It's 92 here right now and very warm in the sun. I just got home from golfing ... might need to take a nap. Bye........

Stephanie said...

Great shots of fog.

Maggid said...

Super nice tour -
I'll go back & help walk the pups . . NOT going for a sail . . .

Excellent Day to YOU!

I love the foggy shots, beautiful photos all of them and now that I have actually set eyes on Lake Ontario after our last trip up north, I am delighted to see it again.

Looking at these pictures,I can almost feel the heat and humidity. Most definitely not my kind of weather.

LONDONLULU said...

Heehee, I love the word landlubber. The weather has been perfectly muggy here lately too. Doesn't look this good though!:)

Randy said...

I could go for a walk in the fog.

edenhills said...

Beautiful pictures. We've had really hot, hazy weather here too.

Annesphamily said...

Beautiful photos! I don't like the hot weather. I will fare better in cooler temps like the 70 's and 60's with low humidity!

It is always fun sharing and that sailboat is very cool.

Have a fun weekend and thanks againf or sharing!

Nice photo essay of your part of the world. Keep 'em coming.

Indrani said...

A mysterious environment there.

Tracy Cook said...

How lovely to be able to walk on a beach with grandchildren

Terri said...

I don't like the combo of heat and humidity, but if I had a gorgeous view like that...I would probably be out there as much as possible! Love that first shot!

Debra @ Homespun said...

Love that sailboat photo!

Judie said...

Oh, thank God! I thought for a minute that my cataract surgery had failed!! I love fog photos!!!

Maria Gagliano said...

Lovely, perfect F is for Fog photos!

Cezar and Léia said...

The fog adds a mysterious touch to the images...
But I dunno if I would be happy to cope with the fog for long...
God bless you!

Rose said...

Love the first and last shot!

Pam Beers. said...

We have the same fog on this side of Lake Ontario, in Rochester, NY. Lovely photos.

I am going to follow you.

Jenny said...

These photographs of fog are fantastic...

I am fascinated by the sailboat sitting out there on a fog-filled day with no wind blowing... Very strange!

Fabulous post for the letter "F"!

Thanks for linking.
