picture for book poetry in words. love your pictures.
wish I could take close ups better with my digital camera. Like you I've had problems on line with hackers and the like. I'll leave my email later date.

A cool story about this is that there was a guy who tried to run to the end of the breakwater between was right after this. He got soaked.

We are using the picture in a 5th garde science fair as background for a tsunami experiment. Thanks so much for putting it in the public domain.


We are using the photo for a 6th grade science fair photo on waves & tides.
