Foggy Sanibel Friday

No, I don't mean "Foggy Friday" as in the day immediately following "Thirsty Thursday", when things seem "foggy" due to being slightly hung over from the previous evening.

I mean foggy, as in areas of dense fog, caused from our warm, humid air and an approaching cold front.  That means some cooler weather this weekend, but things should be warming up again on Monday. 

Early this evening we went across the Sanibel Causeway to Ft Myers.  The skies varied from sunny and blue, to hazy or dense fog, depending on which direction you were looking.

By enlarging the photo, you can barely see the two tall buildings in the distance.

Ft Myers Beach is hidden behind dense fog.

On the way back we could see bright sunshine until we reached the Sanibel Causeway.  There we were met by dense fog, no sunshine and you couldn't even see the water from the highest bridge.  It was like that until we reached spoil island B.  The fog was gone and the sun was peeking through the clouds.

I remember those foggy days in FL. One time there was a fire in NFMyers and there was heavy fog. There was no way to get off Bayshore Rd without going "through". They had a crew out there that would put their hand on your car door and walk you through the whole mess because you literally could not see the road in front of you. It was about a mile long..and it seems to me they walked about halfway and then passed you off to the next "walk man"...Hope you have clear skies today- Hugs- Diana

I've noticed the fog a few times on the Pointe Santo camera recently. I'm on the verge of scheduling our return to the island for October. I'm in need of a little beach break right now... Wishing we were coming for Spring Break!
