It's a Manx thing
This week on the ABC round I am spoiled for choice, living on the Isle of Man. The local language once almost obsolete, but again being spoken by islanders is known as Manx. Even the local sea mist (featured yesterday) has a Manx flavour, known locally as Manannan's Cloak, a mythical sea mist, a shroud to protect us from enemies thrown over the island to obscure you it from view, by the sea God Manannan also known as Manannan Mac Lir. For further reading see links below. The mist usually lasts a day or so, rolling in from the sea, over the island and can indeed be quite spooky and play havoc with your camera lens.

I wonder if any of you out there, also have a specfic name for your local fog/mist.
