Foam party anyone?

Incredible amount of sea foam stuck in a small bay at Carcavelos Beach. It looks like a gigantic jelly pudding shaking in the wind.

It looks like someone dumped a lot of detergent in a giant washing machine.

Wow at first glance I thought it was snow

JM said...

Coca Cutie,
This is a storm consequence due to all the sediments rivers have thrown into the sea.

I thought it was snow at first. A good surprise. Love your description of the foam.

I don't think I've ever seen anything like this. Thanks for sharing.

Saretta said...

Wow, that's neat! I'm for the party, let's jump in!

Hilda said...

Oh wow. That's natural?? Fantastic!

Dina said...

That photo should be in the newspapers.
Wow, so strange and wonderful.
Sea foam, eh? That sounds nice.

Lois said...

That is a lot of sea foam! I don't think I've ever seen that much before in one place.

Jarart said...

It just looks so strange to me. I wonder what causes it to build up and stay like that. I'm so glad you shared this picture.

joo said...

Could be fun:)
It's really incredible amount!

Wow, that's a lot of sea foam! Enlarged, it looks curdled or like it hasn't really broken up or what have you? Wonder what brought that on? You must of been a bit surprised JM-

I have never seen something like this if not for some sort of industrial spill. It even looks very soft and nice...

I always wonder if it isn't at least partly due to water pollution. I remember driving through foam like that once on the coast of Brittany (Bretagne).

Jacob said...

Is that what they're referring when they speak of foaming at the mouth (of the bay)? ;-)

Quite unique and a beautiful shot.

Very frothy day at the beach.

I don't know much about the sea and I'm sure I've never seen sea foam like this. Thanks for the info about your other shot. All of this chaos is such a contrast to the still beauty of your current banner.

Andreea said...

That looks amazing. I don't think I'll like to jump into it, I rather admire it from outside its boundary. I've never seen something like this before.

Wolynski said...

Incredible. Is this normal or to do with your unusual weather?

Small City Scenes said...

I find that foam stuff icky. I hope it blows back out to sea. MB

Dean Grey said...

Yuck, kind of gross looking, JM!

Does the foam just sort of evaporate over time?
