The monstrous waves broke violently in front of Neanderdad’s offspring, half blocking the horizon, shaking the ground and causing the air to shudder. The children darted forward and retreated before the tumult, two tiny, shivering imps daring a beastly sea in flowered swimsuits. Behind them, forgotten, lay the warm, dry beach, their towels and Neanderdad. Despite his entreaties, the children eschewed him—and safety—to stand instead in the path of these seething, lunging mountains of ocean.
