Fur and Foam

At home, Doglet was getting the zoomies and making a general pest of herself. Nothing that a couple of hours on the beach wouldn’t cure. So we went to the Great Ponds.

To the beach.

The Ponds are steadily filling — now spilling into shoreside parking areas.


Water is moving into the flats on the edge of Crab Creek.

To the east of the Crab Creek bridge, where the Pond is periodically opened to the ocean, a mini-barrier beach has been formed by recent winds, creating an inches-deep “lagoon”.


A good place to explore…




One of the things we saw was an accumulation of foam.


A recent spell of strong wind had brought in wave after wave of bubbles, which built up and eventually filled a space.


Many things are told by the  patterns made in the collected froth .


You can see the history of the buildup, almost like the growth rings of trees.


The foam’s freight includes leaves, pine needles, and feathers.


Inspecting it all.


Was Coquina.
