"As the temperature began to fall, a wall of mist silently rose from the waters moving toward the unsuspecting shoreline on it's way to engulf the narrow band of land. Slowly it crept around the point and up through the tall stately pines on the high bluff above the secluded cove where migrating flocks were seeking shelter to wait out the approaching storm." -KM
