When the Fog Clears, the Maine Coast Opens Up

As I mentioned in my previous post, the Maine coast is known for its thick fog, which swirls through coastal towns every spring and summer. This marine layer reduces the visibility drastically and hides the sun from all who wish to see it.

But just as soon as the fog lifts — which can take days sometimes — a brilliant blue sky will dominate once again. The air is so clear on these springtime days, you feel as if you can see for miles. The sun shines brightly on the ocean, as the entire harbor sparkles in a glorious display of nature’s light.

The mosquitoes and black flies have yet to arrive, the temperatures reach 60 during the day and fall to 40 at night, and the glorious aroma of green grass sits in the air. These are days to treasure!
