Seafoam

I bought an excellent book from the Shell Museum on Sanibel Island called Florida's Living Beaches by Blair and Dawn Witherington. The book has photos and explanations of things often found on the beach. They explained that seafoam is caused when microscopic plants and animals (plankton) are broken up by the waves during a storm, their fat eventually is mixed with air and turns into suds. I thought that was very interesting. Although it looks pretty disgusting sometimes, it is harmless!
