Clearing Skies

The low hanging fog that has been hanging over the island has lifted and today was sunny but also windy; that fog was holding in a lot of heat like a down comforter and temperatures went from 50 to 40 with a nasty windchill with the clearing skies. As I type I'm watching the surf pounding the beaches at Little Bishop's Rock and the base of Split Top Mountain through the window.

I took this picture out at Morris Cove; you can see the island is starting to green up a bit, especially by the water. Just a few more weeks until the mountains dry out enough for hiking! I can't seem to get the settings right on the camera I'm using - the sky and background is always washed out and over-exposed.

Great picture again, Steve. Man, I need to move to Alaska. 40 degrees? It is 96 today in Ohio!

Lothian, I can't handle the heat - I'm too well insulated, if you know what I mean . . .

Me too! Move someone a lot less warmer! South FL been in the low 90's every day - 100% humidity and now it's starting to rain!
