ROCKLAND, Maine — The Rockland Breakwater was a big draw at noon Monday during high tide as people came to watch waves crash over the nearly mile-long granite structure that protects part of Rockland Harbor.

The high seas were the result of Hurricane Sandy.

The spectators came despite a city order to close off the path to the breakwater to foot traffic because of the danger from the storm.
