I Get Misty

Yesterday, Charles and I attended the last Mass of the season at the Shrine of St. Therese.  Afterwards, there was a celebration to thank the workers who donated their time and effort to renovate the Shrine Lodge.

As we were walking to the car, Charles called my attention to the fog that was hanging over the mountains and water in the distance.

These photos were not taken in a black and white setting!

Last night the cruise ships were blowing their fog horns as they departed the harbor.   It is such a mournful sound, but so lovely. 

This morning, again, Charles told me to "come outside and look at the fog" - so I grabbed my camera and walked down to the Douglas Boat Harbor.

Another beautiful morning in Douglas!


  1. wow. What kind of camera do you have, Paula? I am mulling the purchase of a camera.

    1. Allison - it is just a point and shoot Nikon Cool Pix. Actually, I think my phone takes better pictures!

  2. Stunning photos today, thank you for sharing them

  3. Paula
    You are so blessed to live in such a beautiful area!
    I wish I had made it there this summer. Maybe next year...

  4. Oh my goodness, that really is beautiful, I can only imagine waking to see that every morning - it's slightly more jam-packed with houses and cars where I live! I love that my blog name caught your eye, as you probably realised I'm not a real Eskimo (or Yu'pik - I never knew that, you learn something new every day :) ... but as my name is Emma, ever since I was small my family have called me Emskimo ... so when I was considering blog names, it just seemed apt to use it in the title - although I have to admit it doesn't give much away as to what I like to blog about! So lovely to have met you today (or rather tonight!), and I look forward to more chats :)
    Em xx

  5. Wow, You are so lucky to live in such a beautiful part of the world.
