How many ways are there for the waves to break on the seashore? Each beach, each tide, is different. Have you ever noticed how the circular motion of waves means that waves are retreating and advancing at the same time? No sooner has a wave crashed on the shore creating millions of salty bubbles, than it is being dragged back seawards under the sediments, while the next wave builds and advances above. The whole cyclical dynamic process generating  hypnotic movement and sound accompanied by changing lacey patterns of seafoam on water and shingle.

  1. Now, that would be a something! Waves moving from side to side parallel to the shore. If I ever sea it, I’ll be sure to photograph it and post it on the blog.
