Move over, Jersey beach washups

A washup of assorted garbage closed a few New Jersey beaches for part of the Labor Day weekend, putting a sad end to what otherwise was a pretty clean beach summer. But vacationers certainly didn't have to deal with the likes of this.

"Foam swallowed an entire beach and half the nearby buildings, including the local lifeguards' centre, in a freak display of nature at Yamba in New South Wales," according to the Daily Mail.

The Australian newspaper reported that the giant bubble bath, stretching 30 miles into the Pacific, suddently transformed shoreline north of Sydney into the "Cappuccino Coast."

The newspaper said scientists blamed the frothy concoction on "impurities in the ocean, such as salts, chemicals, dead plants, decomposed fish and excretions from seaweed"

Hey, Jersey's got all that stuff and more. How come we don't get cool foam like this?
