It may not have been the smartest thing I’ve ever done, but I watched the waves Hurricane Bill created on the Rhode Island shore. It’s amazing how nature and wild animals can make humans do stupid things with their curiosity and allure.
I would have guessed that these waves were 8-12 feet high, but the lifeguard said they were 15-17 feet high. Either way they were impressive, and I have never seen waves so high. My belly was pulled toward my spine out of sheer tension.
