Twenty to thirty foot waves were forecast for today, so I grabbed my camera and my daughter to keep me company. Instead of heading to the North Shore and fighting traffic, we headed to the Waianae coast. It was a beautiful drive and the waves were thunderous. I watched one guy taking pictures with his point-and-shoot just as one of the waves splattered over him. Fortunately, he was far enough away that the force of the wave didn't do anything but get him seriously wet, but I kept my eye on him. (Not that I was going to go after him if he got eaten by one of those monster waves.... ) Later, I caught up with him and we joked about how he was getting a little up close and personal with some of those waves.
