Cappuccino ? ? ?

Cappuccino…. no, sea foam.  The beach was full it as I took my morning walk. Here the foam is lying in the hollow of an ancient stump.  You can see others in the background.  In this place the sea rolls over the remains of an ancient forest.  

It is frothy, looks like fun and the kids were playing in it, but is made up of dead seaweed, decomposed fish and any “garbage” that ends up in the ocean.  It doesn't smell bad and as I stood in it to get the photos it felt like soap.  Later, after it dried it was one of the best glues I have ever "met".  It took a long time to get it off my clothes and shoes.
