Infinite Views by Keith R Wahl, Made From RI Gallery

Rounding Beavertail Point. Passengers on the ship often asked where the "big waves" came from. We would explain that the "big waves" are "groundswells". We considered the groundswells to be a gentle roll, but that is perspective.

There would also be a jovial response of "Portugal". The response is close to accurate. Portugal is almost exactly due east from Rhode Island on Latitude 41° North.

So standing on the shore of Charlestown Beach, as waves rush in our oldest son asks where the waves come from. He's amazed staring off into what seems infinite. I explain that they come from well over the horizon, "Portugal". One part of the earth touching from what seems to be an infinite view. The consideration gives us perspective.
