a tsunami is coming

a tsunami is coming, originally uploaded by wwc photos.

We arrived at Tenjikan, after leaving Tomo at Hotel Mae, to find a sign reading, "A Tsunami is Coming." Wow. We went around the parking lot asking people. There were people in the surf. Cam checked NHK on his keitai. It was the earthquake in Peru. The tsunami was estimated at 20cm and had already past. It felt bad laughing at the sign, knowing that a death toll would come rolling in later. But I can now say I surfed a tsunami. In the background you can see the crazy observation building carved into a large rock. The seat on top are for watching the rocket launches as this is the home base for the Japan Space Agency.
