Fog Magic

Day 106

We had fog this morning.

It was no pea souper, but a bit, enough to notice.

I was talking to a kindergartener at recess after the fog was long gone and trying to explain that fog is really a cloud lying on the ground.  She kept looking at the ground, asking “where is it?”

 

Book:

The Nova Scotia setting and time travel element of this story appeal to me, but it would probably be a bit too leisurely of a read for most children these days.  Greta travels back to Colonial times through the fog, and while I would hesitate to call her forays into the past adventuresome, her experiences do force her to grow up.  The ending is bit disappointing to most readers, but it was a 1943 Newbery honor book.  Personally, I kind of miss the Nova Scotia fog (gratuitous picture follows), so I wouldn’t mind reading it again.
