The Surf – An awesome sight on Revere Beach

March 4, 2010

Last week’s storm churned up the Atlantic Ocean, which rose to levels we have not witnessed in years.

Then the wind drove the waves and the sand went sideways, whipping this way and that.

For three days, the waves crashed against the seawalls and caused flooding here and there.

On Revere Beach, sand flew onto the boulevard wholesale, and the water went higher than we might ever have imagined.

It was awesome.

Even those tending not to see God anywhere saw him in those high tides and monstrous waves.
