My walk early this morning was a real treat. Magical, mysterious fog had crept during the night into the very heart of downtown San Diego, where I live. High skyscrapers disappeared into the gray. Please enjoy a few photos…

Skyscrapers aren't scraping so much this morning. They are being softly engulfed by the elements!

  1. Palm trees and fog look funny together πŸ™‚ Though I do remember fogs like that in tropical Australia as a kid, nowadays the fog makes me think of London and cold places. Interesting pics, they make me think of all kinds of stories and scenarios…

      1. For kids it’s fun, I’m sure! Especially if it’s just for a day πŸ™‚ I once went sledding as an adult and was surprised at what a wimp I’d become, I was terrified of the speed! Haha πŸ˜‰ As a child, I would’ve loved it! Oh well! πŸ˜‰
