Beautiful morning with the sea smoke, make sure you are dressed warm when going outside.

A look out towards the Wingaersheek sandbar from Lighthouse Beach. The snow is approaching quickly and the wind is up for sure.
Thanks to Betsey and Paul Horovitz for the photo!
Yesterday around 5:30 pm on Shore Road came across flying Sea Foam. So what is Sea Foam? Definition from Wikipedia: Sea foam, ocean foam, beach foam, or spume is a type of foam created by the agitation of seawater, particularly when it contains higher concentrations of dissolved organic matter (including proteins, lignins, and lipids) derived from sources such as the offshore breakdown of algal blooms. These compounds can act as surfactants or foaming agents. As the seawater is churned by breaking waves in the surf zone adjacent to the shore, the presence of these surfactants under these turbulent conditions traps air, forming persistent bubbles that stick to each other through surface tension. Due to its low density and persistence, foam can be blown by strong on-shore winds from the beachface inland.
What a beautiful morning after the snow on Friday. Could not wait to get out of bed to take a look around.
Going to walk to the beach next..
As soon as I saw the Sea Smoke, had to go to Shore Road, Sea Smoke is awesome.
