  1. WOW! I love all the waves. They’re great! I didn’t dislike my waves in the back…and I was okay with my waves in the front. But I didn’t like them together. They struggled with one another…maybe because I kept seeing a horizon line with a sky. I’ll do it again. Waves are really hard but we all LOVE them! HA!
