The day started sunny, and when you see large mist clouds forming you must be in a complete rush to finish the painting, because you know all sunniness will be gone in 40 min. or less!
We call it 'Sea flame' here. A sudden change from a blue sky and sunny to total overcast and cold.
I could finish shortly after the fog had covered all of the sunlight. It this happens in Spring or Summer most bathers are quick to run away, often it just takes a few hours, the sun will come out from under it. But it does get cold!

Beginning of the day
The fog wasn't only covering the sun but the complete view! You couldn't see the ocean, dunes, anything anymore.
You know I say painting in grey weather is just fine, well, fog is a different thing. It might work with passing figures, cliffs and rocks. But flat beaches then do get a bit boring :)
