Rolling back

Christmas Eve - the airport has been able to function, but still the fog has lingered over the south coast -  past Island Bay it looks almost overwhelmed by a really thick blanket of dense fog covering the hills.

But we can see Island Bay, and a wider view from Princess Bay shows that the clouds are in retreat, the light is breaking through, and the gloom should be gone for Christmas!

Looking dramatic, but there is light - the south coast, with Taputeranga and the Island Bay hills cleared of the fog and visible in the distance.  Blue skies are appearing - the sombre mood is breaking.
