Tag Archives: Sea Smoke
To all the people (Skip Montello et al) who got up at the crispy crack of dawn (see what I did there?) and took photos of the sea smoke when it was wild and crazy I thank you. Better you than me and you take better photos anyway. Find them on Facebook in “Rockport Stuff”. Skip takes some of them in Infrared which are mind boggling.
nb. There is an old wive’s tale about the noise a duck makes, the quack, does not echo. Glad we cleared that nonsense up.
As soon as I saw the Sea Smoke, had to go to Shore Road, Sea Smoke is awesome.
This morning I set out to check on the swans at Niles Pond and was as captivated by the beautiful sea smoke coming off the Atlantic as were my fellow contributors. I didn’t see the swans, but then again, it was too cold to look for very long.
Sea smoke appears when very cold air passes over warmer water, causing a type of fog. Warmer water, if you did the plunge on New Year’s Day, it is a relative term.
The low morning temps produced a 40 degree temp differential between air and water creating a sea smoke spectacle all around the Cape.

Enjoy reading your blog. My dad (Rich Vassallo) took these photos of Thatchers. Thought I’d forward them on to you.
Have a good one, Andy
Here is a picture near Niles Beach from Eastern Point Road this morning. Steam rising off of the harbor, air temp – 5 degrees.
The boat wasn’t sinking they just had one of their stabilizing booms down over the side and it was encased in ice.
