I think if I saw that coming at me. I would be heading for higher ground. I would be worried it is toxic.

We were anchored in Salinas, Ecuador waiting for the right time to leave for Easter Island and the rest of the South Pacific. Salinas has a magnificent beach, no rain, and almost perpetual sun. In the four months or so we were there it only rained twice. The first was a minor little shower. The second was an incredible downpour which the locals said hadn't happened in years. When we awoke the morning after the storm the entire bay was a sea of foam like that pictured in the link. I had seen very small examples of this foam in the two salt ponds in the Caribbean - where salt was extracted from the evaporated sea water.

Our assumption was that the huge swath of sand beach had become super-saturated with salt in that arid climate, and the combination of wind and rain had whipped up that condensate like egg whites are whipped. It was an incredible sight.

JeanneP,

That would be a bit scary unless you understood the source.
