Phocines and Fog on Vineyard Sound


Woods Hole.

Seals bask on rock.

The Harbor Seal is “Phoca vitulina”.

We are on the ferry. Eight-fifteen, on an almost windless late fall day.

Fog lies here and there, moving but slowly, in Woods Hole, throughout the Sound, and over the Vineyard.

Looking southwest, down the sound, there is fog.

Across the sound, fog, silhouetting summer camps,  seeps from Lake Tashmoo into the Sound.

Coming into Vineyard Haven Harbor, we we see heaps of fog to the south.

A  white puff of dissipating fog is set off by the fogbank in the background.
