Foggy mist envelopes the Pacific Ocean beach at Ocean Shores, WA. A women wearing a pair of pink crocs sits on driftwood watching the late summer surf crash on the beach in front of her. Her hood up bracing against the chilly wind blowing ashore creates a juxtaposition of season vs. weather, creating a much different scene than one would suppose at this time of year, the high temperature was only 59° F.
Knowing that we only had a couple weeks before I return to work for another school year, my husband and I laid aside painting the house, buttoned it up and had an overnight at the ocean. The cool mist and fog were not an unwelcome sight for me, I loved the respite from summer heat.
