No, you haven't travelled a couple of kilometres down the road, but like the name suggests sea foam is a regular part of the beaches here in Melville as well (especially after a big storm!).

As a result of the last couple of stormy days, I haven't been able to get down to the beach to find our mystery animal from the last post, but I have gotten some good guesses as to what it might be. It is not a moose or a puffin, but I thought those were great guesses.

I have never seen a puffin, although there are many places in Nova Scotia you can go to catch a glimpse of them. One of the most famous nesting sites is Donelda's Bird Island in Cape Breton.

Sea foam is however, quite common along all beaches in the world and forms with agitation of the water, which is then blown ashore by strong winds. Which, if you have ever been to Melville on a stormy day, we get no short supply of! 

Here are a few pictures of the sea foam that has settled on the beach today. 

It is also my brother's golden birthday today, so if you see him around Melville make sure to wish him a Happy Birthday!
