In the Mist

Although it's almost June, today was foggy most of the day - we got the coastal fog. Fine droplets spat on our windshield as we drove home. It's chilly out. On the western side of the canyon, the clouds are pouring over the crest of Saddlepeak.

Our house was built in 1962, in a post-and-beam modern style. Our living room and kitchen are above the garden, facing southwest toward the ocean and the mountains. It is solid windows - from floor to ceiling. Beyond the glass is a narrow deck. When you stand on the deck, it's as if you are on the prow of a ship, sailing into the mists.

Here tonight, with only lamplight, the blue of the waning evening outside the windows. It feels so cozy to be inside.

I love this house.

Those shots look like classic Architectural Digest...warm tones inside, and cool blue outside.
What a beautiful place!

I can see why. Beautiful place. Those windows...oh, I'd spend so much time at those windows.
