Sentient Sea Fog on Dover Harbour Seafront, Kent, England, United Kingdom

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

As though imbued with ancestral memory, a thick finger of fog has found the only gap between seafront buildings that stand upon an ancient River Dour estuary which will take it over the Dover Bronze Age Boat site and on to the Roman Navy Classis Britannica fort near the Market Square. Also in view: Pebble Beach, Tonkin Lui Artwork, and Dover Castle. Port History, Travel, Tourism, and Vacation.

The seafog is passing between the Dover Marina Hotel and the Royal Cinque Ports Yacht Club sections of Waterloo Crescent with Burlington House floating on top behind. Another photo, taken from further out in the harbour, shows the fog stretching from the White Cliffs of Dover at East Cliff to where it passes in front of the RCPYC (yacht club) building:

The light towers in front of the spa hotel are part of the Tonkin Liu artwork. See:

Tonkin Liu Artworks, or Sculptures, on Dover Seafront

Like Dover Castle, Waterloo Crescent is a Dover Listed Building. See:

To the right of Waterloo Crescent, the Gateway Flats on Marine Parade (far side of the promenade) are obscured. See:

Pebble Beach, Seafront, Gateway Flats, and Dover Castle

The photo was taken near sunset from the Prince of Wales Pier on the 19th February 2013. A similar view taken on a sunnier day in October 2012:
