Riding In The Fog Line

The term “fog” is typically distinguished from the more generic term “cloud” in that fog is low-lying, and the moisture in the fog is often generated locally (such as from a nearby body of water, like a lake or the ocean, or from nearby moist ground or marshes)……thanks Wikipedia.

Today was such a dramatic example of “living in/on the fog Line” it just had to be documented. It was sunny when we left home join us on our ride and see what happens.

Fog came and went the first half of the ride then heading back towards Monterey we turned a corner and 💥 we were in the middle of it! These are all electric rental bikes.

 

The next corner we have this great view.
As you can see it changes rapidly. When we first headed out today (before my documentation) there was a spot where it lifted as we were riding through…magic. Now you see it now you don’t!
By the time we got to the marina for lunch this was our view😊
Heading home I went over the biggest hill just to get this for you. Can You find the Embassy Suites Hotel?
Just down the hill along the beach you have this view.
Back home it was partial sun when I arrived. By the time I put the bike away it was like the hotel photo and now it is clear skies.

Hope you enjoyed your ride in the foggy central coast. Out by Asilomar the fog was drizzling…… definitely water in there.

    Great series of fog and sun! How do you know what to wear when you leave home?

      It’s usually pretty simple as the median temp is almost always 59-60. Wool shirt and fleece vest are about all I always wear but yesterday the wind was cold so twice I had to put on and tale off my lightweight bike jacket I carry with me always!

    I enjoyed your fog photos and descriptions. While driving from Santa Rosa through San Francisco to the airport yesterday morning, we encountered similar, as I know you have also experienced. Some places — like the GG Bridge — completely wrapped in fog. Some neighborhoods clear. Sometimes spilling over tops of hills. Tendrils here and there. It’s a cool, gray mystery. Ride safe!

    Interesting photos — how the fog waxes and wanes over time and distance.
    We [almost] moved to CA back in the 80’s and were warned about the fog that occurs between Fresno and Madera in the Central Valley.
    Thanks for the effort to get the Embassy Suites photo!

      Rich…..the fog in the valley is different. It is usually in the winter and is a “tulle” fog. Very close to the ground and very thick!! Very difficult to drive through where our fog is usually higher up and most often ok to drive through….it can get really thick at times. I prefer our fog! One Christmas i drone down Hwy 5 to LA with my son and he had to drive as it was so scary to me!! You couldn’t see a car length in front of you and people were going 70mph!
