Mannum morning Fog, SA


When staying in Mannum, South Australia it was foggy, sea fog to be exact one morning.  I grabbed my camera and the first photo is what I saw.  The photos were taken from the Caravan Park.



Yes, it's a Pelican - two -











Mannum has a population of just over 2,000 people.  The streets were bare of people, no one in the shops and one being closed for lunch.  A new supermarket up on top of a hill seemed to be always busy each time we visited it.

The first European settlement in the area was in 1840.

    1. Not a good idea to drive in it if you can get out of it.

  9. Fogs come in and sensible locals if they don't have to be up early
    for work stay indoors - why drive in a fog?
    Seems the barges are operating on the river, though.
    I am sure the gulls, pelicans and duck varieties will get out of the way.
    Strange this absence of the locals in the streets - very strange????

    1. Also mostly an early morning fog means a clear perfect sunny day.
      Slight fog here this morning on the north side of the Brisbane River and now perfect sunshine.

    2. Was winter and the town is small, mainly a tourist one, so hence no people.
      We will have a few fogs from now on too.
