Fog coated the ocean, and a cold, moist wind made her eyes water.
It seems peculiarly adapted for the mild moist climate of Ireland.
The climate, though moist, is healthy, and the people are generally tall and robust.
In the summer a great accumulation of solar heat takes place on the dry surface soil, from which it cannot be released upwards by evaporation, as might be the case were the soil moist or covered with vegetation, nor can it be readily conveyed away downwards as happens on the ocean.
These are connected by the presence of peculiar types, Proteaceae, Restiaceae, Rutaceae, &c., mostly shrubby in habit and on the whole somewhat intolerant of a moist climate.
