Ocean watching (especially waves) is exciting! Usually when waves are coming to shore, you see them curl upward and inward and then crash and roll to shore. It was nearly high tide in Kennebunk, Maine. There were so many waves coming in, that some of them would crash into the seawall then roll back towards the sea. They would then meet up with waves coming in.
They would “bump” into each other, rise up, and then roll backward or kind of “skitter” sideways for awhile after a slight hesitation in midair. This is a most fascinating action to watch – almost magical to me. I could have stayed all day! This is one of the waves I was able to capture.
