May and June are the months when the coastal fog (marine layer) is most persistent. On some days it won’t burn off until noon, but thankfully, the sun began to break through the gloom pretty early during my morning walk with Toni at nearby Lake Hodges.
The lake itself is filled to the brim after a very wet “La Nina” winter – it’s actually overflowing at the dam. The warm morning sunlight, partially filtered by the dissipating fog, created a nice range of colors together with the slowly drying open sagebrush on the hillsides, contrasted by the still richly green larger bushes and trees.
