Tiny Bubbles

Remember foam parties from the '90s, those wild soirées in which the dance floor was covered in several feet of suds? Good times, good times. Well, last weekend on Dune Road in Westhampton, beachgoers noticed a similarly thick, oozy foam on the shore: "A number of environmental experts familiar with the ocean have differing opinions of what is causing the white, almost paint-like substance that follows the breaking waves, though all agree it is a natural phenomenon and nothing that should chase anyone from the water."
