    Arrived in Durness at about 3pm got set up, went for a walk to near by village, then on the sandy beach, a beautiful sunny day, about 20c, the sea was blue. At about 6pm after the walk wife cooked evening meal sat and ate outside with glass of red wine. Sat there till about 8pm then all of a sudden sea mist or whatever, like thick fog within 30mins. EERIE:Eeek:

    Same thing happened to me a few years back in Scarborough . We took a class on a trip. They all ran down to the sea barefoot. A thick mist came down within minutes. We shouted for all the kids to come ack :Eeek: health and safety , risk assessment hadn't accounted for this :Doh:
    Out of the mist appeared at least half a dozen brightly coloured giggling sari clad Asian women. Not what we were expecting:Laughing:
    Panic stations CLASS SIX come ack now !!!! :Eek!::Eeek:
    They did , eventually , head counted all there.
    Back on the footpath safe and sound but the sea fret stayed on the beach for an hour.

    Happens quite often near the coast it was probably a change in the tide.

    That'll be Advection fog, which is fairly common at this time of year. The sea is still relatively cool compared to say September or even October. Moist Warm air over a cool lump of water like the sea or a large lake and you have Advection Fog.

    Dangerous for small vessels making a landfall..........:thumb:
