Silver Surf. 24 x 36.

The Monterey Peninsula lies perpendicular to the long Pacific swells
that raise great combers in the shelving waters. The waves rake
either shore with heavy sends of water, whelming sidelong up the
beaches and over the rocks. As the seas retreat, the water falls
directly down the side across the next oncoming wave, setting up a
welter of cross-surf that frequently confounds the next breaker,
causing it to collapse and send its spray upward in violent
frustration at being balked so near the shore after a free run over
ten thousand miles of sea.
