But, when we got to the harbor we saw fog over the water.
We stayed down at the harbor area for an hour or so, waiting to see if the fog would burn off.
During that time we took a nice walk along a path that bordered the shoreline. The primary planting along it were old fashioned, wild roses. Craig enjoyed watching the bees rolling around in the blossoms collecting pollen.
The fog did not clear, so we decided to go up to the Cadillac Mountain overlook, which is the highest point in the park and has fantastic views. After waiting our turn to park, we walked around feasting our eyes on the distant views.
The views were amazing! Since the clouds and the creeping fog promised a possibility of a great sunset, we decided to go back to the rig for a while and return for the sunset hour.
As the sun began to tinge the sky with hints of color, the fog banks over the harbor crept around and partially covered the islands.
Every sunset is different. Every moment there are subtle changes in light. Craig and I went in opposite directions on the summit with our cameras in hand. Other bloggers will understand how difficult it is to judge your own pictures and choose which one to post. I try not to overload my posts. So here are just a few of the images that we captured Tuesday night:
