Surf Watch!

Oh, my goodness, we have never seen anything like it. We have had a Surf Watch for 3 or 4 days now and it goes until noon tomorrow. How the weather casters can tell it will be over by noon I don't know. Anyway, the waves have been 12 to 15 feet high here. They are crashing over the rock wall barrier onto the road. There is a fine salt mist in the air. Car windows and glasses get speckled. It is really beautiful and amazing the power the ocean has. This morning while we were walking, a road grader came along and had to scrape the sand that had washed up across the road. It reminded me of snow plows in Utah clearing the roads during the winter. The surfers have parked their cars on the road at Pakala and it must be a quarter mile long almost up to Makaweli on both sides of the street. Some day Wally and I are going to have to park there ourselves and hike down through the fields to see that great surfing beach.
