Fog swept in off of Lake Huron toward evening last night. A spring thunderstorm in the afternoon brought warm air which met the cool water and produced layers of fog along the shoreline.

Our lakehouse is about 43 degrees north of the equator, so contrast the photo of the Lake Huron's shore with this one, taken near San Sebastian, Spain last week in Basque Country.

It was a Sunday afternoon, late in the day, and clouds hung over the Atlantic. The coastline of Spain is mountainous here. San Sebastian is 20 kilometers from France and is located on the Bay of Biscay. If I had turned the camera toward the harbor you would be looking at a long crescent beach that is the envy of the coastline and the heart of this beach resort town.

Interestingly enough, San Sebastian is 43.32 degrees north while our lakehouse is 43.66 degrees north. It was a wonder to me to realize that we flew north toward the Arctic Circle and then south into Barcelona and ended up at almost the same distance north as we are at home.

It's a small world, in many ways.
