Yesterday’s sunset glow was visible below low stratus, and as dusk blended to night, the sky was a hint of radiant blue to the northeast. This morning during the five o’clock hour, the air was very still, warm and close—there was no hint of sea breeze. The northeastern sky was turbulent as tropical storm Claudia called, and as the dawn advanced, the layers of creamy, pink cloudlets against the blue bore no hint of the uniform, bright pewter sky under the fog blanket now everywhere.

Went out this morning and Toph discovered it was clear on the other side of the next block, just 100 feet away. Ember Ridge was also clear and warm. Ranger ate biscuits and miscellaneous road things, and the Toph sampled grass leaves, mustard greens, peas and chamomile.

Midafternoon, the fog came in considerably, but it was still clear on Ember Ridge. High clouds made figures above Scarper Peak. Now it's dark here, though according to the satellite, fog extends only five miles off the coast and hardly anything at all inland.

There is fog extending 50 miles off shore at the moment, but in Montara, it is brightening. Time for walk with dog and on to real work.

Yesterday could barely see the moon behind a veil of fog. Saw only a brightness there. Today throughout the five o’clock hour, saw the moon an eighth past full over the southwestern sky with a star Mars next to it (according to the Visionary Activist and Nature) in the brightening sky. Fog disappeared yesterday afternoon and hasn't returned. Ranger and the Toph both enjoyed a dunk in the ocean yesterday, and the Toph sampled nori and kombu (also "royal" and description) plucked swirling loose in the cove.

Where is the fog now? It’s out there, but Montara is clear at the post office, the sun is streaming in at the window and temperature 52.9° according to links in yesterday’s post below.

At noon yesterday, the Toph checked the fog satellite picture and decided to go to Ember Ridge. It was foggy, but the picture showed clearing in Linda Mar and Park Pacifica and on the other side of the mountain, a swath leading to Princeton Harbor. Ranger and the Toph walked up the creek that’ dotted in and to the turnaround. It was clear along the southwest face of the mountain range, and patches of sun appeared in a gyre of swirling fog with clouds breaking off and passing over the valley of San Vicente Creek. Then the fog came tumbling over the ridges and the party retreated.

Midafternoon, it cleared to the ocean. Ranger went swimming in a tide pool and two coves west of Sixth Street. A small persistent bank of clouds perhaps 100' across lay just offshore. It sent wisps of clouds overhead in the breeze, but eventually by sunset, there was no fog in sight.

There was a full moon yesterday morning (one day past full) toward the end of the hour before dawn in a grayish sky. It is memorable as today was foggy, almost misty, and still dark well into the advancing dawn. Forecast what they will, toast almost everywhere in the country, but know that here, the natural air conditioning is on at 52.8° F. Toph sees fog covering San Francisco, Pt. Reyes, and all the Peninsula west of Skyline.

It became clear yesterday after church, and then fog covered the neighborhood. At 2:30 on Ember Ridge, it was clear with fog lapping at the treetops along Park at Alamo with wisps breaking away across the valley toward the harbor in the brisk light winds. By four o’clock it was clear at the post office in Montara, a block from the ocean, although the fog still lay off the coast. By sunset, it cleared completely, though it was chilly.

Today it's clear with haze and fog offshore and a light breeze from the northwest.

Yesterday was clear in the morning and the sun shone briefly, then fog came up from the harbor. Then it cleared. Forecast was for hot weather inland. On Ember Ridge it was sunny and breezy, but a huge bank of fog lay off the coast extending from Devil's Slide around Point Montara past Seal Cove and into Princeton Harbor. Sure enough it came in at noon and stayed for the rest of the day, and at four o'clock, even Ember Ridge was fogged over and the ridge across from San Vicente Creek was seeing the last of the sun.

This morning, fog drips from the cypress trees, and it is quite cool and dark.
