foamy sea

We see foam like this after a storm. It is basically algae (and other things) that has been beaten into foam by the churning water.

Beautiful. I can't even imagine living near the water. It must be wonderful!

Of course, I think everywhere in New Zealand is lovely. (Not that I've ever been there. Too cold!)

Oh! I had seen this kind of phenomenon on "Strangest Weather" on "Discovery Science".

Seeing it in real must be an extraordinary experience for newbies like me. For you, it is routine! :) Great photo Betty!
