Sea Stacks

Long ago, when the creatures of the world were large and wild, the story goes that two giantesses walked the shores of the Pacific NW in search of their children. The children had strayed from home and the mothers called to them as the weather turned and the rain began to fall. At last they found the tracks of their children, leading into the sea, and in their despair they stepped out into the water, even as the wind howled and lightening struck. They would not move, even when their husbands came and called for them, even when the storm subsided. There they stayed, looking, waiting, crying for what was lost. As the ages passed their backs curled. Their feet sank into the silt. Their hair grew long and green and matted. They collapsed on their hands and knees, still with eyes fixed to the horizon, and slowly turned to stone. They are still there today, like the wife of Lot, monuments to love.
