I think I should have gone out to the beach today….. but didn’t. I’m sure the waves in the following image from a week ago were much milder than what I might have seen today. Ahhh… the missed opportunities!
High Surf Warning: * Impacts… the surf zone will see occasional wave run ups that reach much farther into shore than the prevailing waves. Random very large waves will also wash over higher rocks and jetties causing very hazardous conditions in and near area beaches and the immediate shoreline. Waves may even reach parking lots close to shore and near sea level.
To stand at the edge of the sea, to sense the ebb and flow of the tides, to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh, to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of years, to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea, is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal as any earthly life can be.”
