Mist after rain

This morning the mist was so thick we couldn’t see beyond the terrace. It was as if we were standing on the edge of a cliff, a bit like the film Gorillas in the Mist except we have neither Dian Fossey/Sigourney Weaver nor gorillas here. But it is a reminder that we are 500m above sea level. Today the temperature is predicted to be 13° while on the coast at Marbella it is 18°. Up here, with the gorillas, sound was deadened, nothing moved, no birds sang, even the ants were not marching across the terrace. mist after rain1 19-3-13 (2)mist after rain4 19-3-13 (2)mist after rain2 19-3-13 (2)5 to remember

    I couldn’t help but chuckle at the Gorilla’s in the Mist! Most of January and all of February was like that here so I can sympathise. At times it felt like we were living on Dartmoor, or in the Scottish Highlands with so much mist and fog. Thankfully that has now gone and we have mostly sunny days now though today is a nippy 8 so hardly t-shirt weather. Tomorrow is meant to be glorious so I hope it is for you too.

      You know when we say we live in southern Spain, people imagine it is like the summer all the time. Nope… snow, wind, rain, storms, lightning, thunder, we get it all! 🙂 SD

    I was about to write that there’s something ‘mystical’ about a ‘misty’ morning – then realised that it’s probably no accident that those two words are homophones. I know your area pretty well, having researched for maps and guidebooks in Andalucia. I’m enjoying your blog very much 🙂
