Fog and mist are a common sight along the Pacific in Northern California. This blanket of fog is called the 'marine layer' and develops regularly where the warm air from inland meets the cooler ocean air full of moisture. Cuffy's Cove is located along a section of northern California's fantastic rugged coast.
This coastline is protected from excessive development -- ie. hotels, motels, condominiums, and MacMansion type vacation homes -- by the California Coastal Commission. As a result, visitors who want to brave this exquisite stretch of Highway One (which is a winding mountain road along the edge of the continent) can enjoy its beauty and visit the State Park nearby at Elk. For this priviledge we have a handful of forward looking people who lived in Mendocino in the early 70's to thank. They initiated the preservation of the coastal areas in California, starting with the headlands of Mendocino, not far north of Cuffy's Cove. For this I salute them!!
We live in a magical world, full of precious beauty. If we protect
nature, we can live in this Paradise forever. Here are a few
excellent resources about renewable energy:

ps. I used a polarizing filter to help me deal with the reflections and brightly lit mist.
