Beach Bubbles, Myrtle Beach SC

Foam on a beach makes me nervous. Is it a sign of a contaminant in the water? I just don’t know.

Low tide in the early morning, with foam at edge of waterPersistent white foam is bad enough, evoking thoughts of soap suds; thoughts around yellow-brown foam are best left unevoked.

Sometimes, though, the bubbles seem both pretty and pretty innocuous.

Colourful froth on the beach

  1. Pollution, alas, can be beautiful, too.

      Barbara – I’ve done some reading that suggests some of this is just froth and not actually icky bits. I hope that’s right.

    Both beautiful photos but I am partial to all the layers of blue in the first one. Any good shells on those beaches, Isabel?

    • Isabel Gibson says:

      Marilyn – Not on these beaches, I’d say. They’re too highly frequented. There are some small offshore islands, though, that have fabulous shelling. Bull Island, for example, which has a regular passenger ferry service. And a few alligators, just to keep it sporting.
