Foggy morning

Woke up yesterday to find the bay full of fog. We live high atop some cliffs that overlook Karaka Bay, just east of Auckland. Normally we look out the windows and see Browns Island, a small grass-covered dormant volcano, and Rangitoto Island, a larger dormant volcano island covered with native forest. And lots of sparkling blue water. 

Yesterday we looked out to see the tops of the clouds instead of water. It's a large area, you can see for miles, so looking down on that amount of fog along with the invisible ships' foghorns sounding from all directions felt like something that wasn't quite real!

Then after it lifted, everything was coated in droplets of water with the bright, bright sun shining through. Just spectacular!
