September 2006 at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, a tiny fishing village about 30 miles or so from Halifax, with a permanent population of about 50. Plus thousands upon thousands of tourists from all over the world. The huge granite rocks are left over from the glaciers of the last Ice Age, 10,000 years ago, which carved out the cliffs and gullies that make the area so unique. This day the Atlantic Ocean was quite calm but there was that long slow ocean swell that rolls in slowly but with great force. The tide was low this time, but the force was enough to send the bursting surf straight up the cliffs and tower over these two people who actually weren’t soaked at all. The spray went up and did the usual seconds of pause and then collapsed, leaving them high and dry.
