The big waves roll inexorably to the shore. Who can tell how far they have traveled across the open Pacific or where they originated. At sea they are hardly noticeable. But when they reach the shore they begin to grow. And grow. And grow. Standing on the shore they appear to briefly become mountains until the peak crests and becomes an avalanche of foam or plummets down the watery wall with a crash and a roar.
