Summer Fog Oak Bay 2015

I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt and I was freezing in the fog that had rolled in off the Pacific and over Willows Beach. Bus loads of tourists were sitting on blankets on the sand, unable to see beyond the first waves and pretending to enjoy their picnic lunch while shivering. At the end of the beach a man was wading through the shallow water, back and forth, aimless but always turning back before he reached the shore and back before he reached the rocks sticking above the water.
