Yesterday afternoon, Honored Guests came from Away. An excellent place to take Honored Guests on a fine, first-day-of-fall day is South Beach, which is arguably one of the finest beaches anywhere. But we didn’t argue. We just went.
There was a creature lurking near the path through the dunes.
A September afternoon in New England can be glorious. This was such an afternoon.
Groups of interesting swells were arriving from time to time.
Waves are like snowflakes. Each one is governed by the same set of physical laws, but yet each one is unique.
Larger waves that come higher up the beach erase the traces of what has come before.
As a wave nears shore, the bottom part of the waves slow down, and the top parts of the waves rise higher. Then the upper parts pass and fall over the lower parts. The wave crashes.
Every crash is different.
Every one is unique.
