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.
Tag Archives: Sea Smoke
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.
