What is a haar?

A "haar" is what locals on the east coast of Scotland call sea fog. It gets really thick and you can't see a thing! It is typically pretty chilly, and you can see it rolling across the ocean onto land.

I was thinking of that tonight because we are currently covered in very thick fog and mist. I lost sight of Angel a couple of times tonight in the park!

Sorry they are blurry. It was hard to get the camera to focus in all that mess!

Just for Fun:  These flowers are so pretty. I got peonies and "stocks", and they smell so good!


  1. Wish we had some chill in the air! Great post!

  2. Hi Kristal,

    I just found your blog, and I'm so excited. I'm a Texan too. My family and I are moving to Aberdeen in September and I am looking for some advice about what to bring/not bring and maybe some ideas for finding a place to live that is near a primary school. We have three small children who will be in 1st and 2nd grade. I love to bake and I'm debating about bringing my mixer. Do appliances work with a transformer very well? Can I buy something like that once I get there? What about bikes for small kids or a bike trailer? I heard there is a Costco there. Is it like Costco in the States? Sorry for all the questions... I'm just so excited to ask someone who knows!

    Thanks so much, beth

  3. Yet another confirmation that Aberdeen and Siletz are sister cities! There are mornings here when I can't see the hand in front of my face. Especially on summer mornings when the warm air of the day seems to suck it right in.


I am happy to hear from you!
