SEAFOAM LATTE?


Light as a feather
moving with the tides
over the rocks
with the help of the breezes


Is this too much?


Hi everyone!
It's Jim and myself
checking out the seafoam
smothering the shoreline again.


See what I mean !!


This really makes me want to have a latte
since the fresh air
and
walk warrant it.
Wouldn't you agree?

  1. Wow, Ron! Great pictures and that video is awesome ~ I love the way you caught the sea foam wiggling in the wind and moving in the waves. The sunlight shining through the translucent foam is so cool! And it does look like latte, you creative doodle!

    I was curious about what sea foam is, so I went and looked. When seawater contains lots of organic pieces of matter, and the ocean is churned up by wind and waves like in your recent storm, sea foam forms. One source of the organic matter is decaying algal blooms offshore. Most times this isn't harmful and is indicative of a productive ecosystem. Sometimes harmful blooms can occur near shore and cause harm to the environment and to humans from algal toxins released by the breaking foam bubbles. Some species of algae form more toxic and harmful blooms and sea foam. source: NOAA ~ http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/seafoam.html.

    Yours looks healthy!!! In my uniformed opinion! LOL! And it is beautiful, especially in the sunlight! Thanks for sharing this ~ It led to me learning something first thing this morning. Have a great day!

    1. I have always wondered if the SEAFOAM was dangerous or not. NOw wouldn't that put a crook in your pampers if it was. I don't see it too often here so fingers crossed that it's the good stuff.

      Re: the video ~ I was stooping down low trying to get almost inside the foam thinking it would be kinda cool like that. It seemed to be taking way too long for any action so I stood up and then the wave came in pushing the foam up high, with an off-shore breeze lifting it all into the air. I had stopped recording before this happened ~~ dang. I'll try to be more careful next time.

  4. Moderation in seafoam is the key. I thought for a minute Jim was tossing Mr Orangie, but then I realized it was an orange speck on my computer screen!

    1. I usually see it once a year during the colder seasons and this would be the right time just about now.

  6. Whenever I've seen that level of foam on the shore, I've always found it very off-putting. You have changed it to beautiful. I'll never see it the same again.

    1. Last year Sophie decided to run through it and get covered ~~ such a dog she is.

      I haven't worried about unfavourable reactions to it but it's good to know what it's all about.

      Thanks to Louise at Fundy Blue Land above.

  8. Hi Y'all!

    My Humans lived on the ocean in Boston, long long ago. (Papa's job took them there) The foam used to get very tall, high? deep? and freeze. I think that is the only place north of the Mason Dixon that my Human ever really enjoyed. (She doesn't "do" cold or wind.) You've certainly captured the beauty of it.

    Y'all come on by,

    1. I don't want to "do" cold or wind either ~~ I got a new PURPLE jacket because the cold is starting to bother me.

      YAY!!

  9. The sea foam looks almost like a living organism in the video.
