Wild, wild ocean

Surfers Paradise

There has been a very deep low building up off the coast for the past 2 days.Our normally mild blue ocean has been whipped into a frenzy of waves and foam. The spray from the top of the “white horses” breaks and waves like a mane. It is totally mesmerizing to watch it in this mood. Crowds of people line the shore with cameras and Iphones capturing nature in all its savage glory. No surfers are out today the ocean would pulverize anyone silly enough to try to compete for a ride.

It is not often our ocean gets this angry. A few years ago we had a tsunami warning. It didn’t develop, but that day crowds of people rushed to vantage points to watch what would happen. I was not one of those people… This time no tsunami warning, just very wild weather.
