This massive rock is called an island hereabouts.
It’s named Table Rock.
On this day, a wave like this would hit the rock about every 3 or 4 minutes. When it did, the sound was a thud that could be heard for a mile.
I marvel at these waves…how they appear out of the depths near shore…the force they demonstrate when something gets in their way…and the beautiful way they display that force!
A sign on the hilltop near this feature said this shoreline used to extend almost 5 miles farther out to sea 12,000 years ago, and that these large, rocky features now off-shore exist because they have resisted the waters’ pounding.
Maybe I should marvel more at the rocks!
