One Giant Bubble Bath!

By on

It was every kids dream come true - a humongous 30 miles long bubble bath to frolic in! - This is exactly what happened on a coastline in New South Wales earlier this month. What was once the Pacific Ocean, turned into waves of foam, engulfing the entire beach and half the buildings nearby.

According to scientists, the foam is created by the churning of powerful water currents in the ocean together with impurities such as salts, chemicals, dead plants, decomposed fish and excretions from seaweed. The two mixed together creates bubbles. These bubbles are stuck to each other as they are carried below the surface by water currents towards the shore. As a wave starts to form on the surface, the motion of the water causes the bubbles to swirl upwards, turning into foam.

Marine experts liken it to making a milkshake - the more powerful the churn, the more foam is created. This was not the first time this beach has become foamy - It also happened in August of last year.

While this may not be the cleanest of bubble baths, as you can see in the pictures below, some kids did not care. They enjoyed frolicking in the fluffy stuff, which they said was like being in the clouds - you were in it but could hardly feel it.
