Thunderation

I’m still in awe of this ocean…the constancy of its actions.

The waves crash on the shore all day, every day…no wind, no recent storms, no noticeable swells offshore…still they crash. We hear their thunder a mile inland all the time!

On days when there’s strong wind or there was a storm somewhere…the swells get rambunctious, and the waves get crazy!

In the areas where large rocks are in the intertidal zone…look out, there’s gonna be some REAL crashing and splashing. A smooth rock face will cause a deep “whomp” sound when hit, and about every tenth wave will cause the ground to shake nearby!

But enough talk…see the pictorial proof. If you click on some of these photos, you can see the grains of sand in the water churned up by the wave action!
