BOOM BOOM

The waves really were remarkable this day in Crescent City!

Waves around here are funny…they tend to occur in two ways: in long lines that tend to be quite uniform from one to the next and are swells that might be kind of big, OR a bunch of erratic bits and pieces of waves that move at different rates and some curl big time and put out all kinds of spray and one will hit that big rock and another will come along and hit this rock.

These waves were something…long lines that started as a large swell, then grew and grew, then started to curl, then made a mad rush to the shore, only to meet suddenly with all the rocks at the edge….

Our peninsula tapered back on one side of its face, so the waves hit there a moment later….DSC_8471
