    it was so far off?

    and at the points you could see the white foam running up the rocks but making no noise because it was so far off.

    Does it mean very long way on the road?

    Re: it was so far off?

    "Far off" can be replaced with "far away". They could see the foam but it was so far away that the sound did not reach them.

    Please note my edits to your first post. When you quote your source, use correct capitalisation of the book title and consistent punctuation with the author's name. There is no need to capitalise "Lewis", just the first letter.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Far off = far away.
