There is the occasional fascinating sea smoke
Never, however, have I seen anything like this. As explained by my friend Mark who sent the photo today, this is “pancake ice” which occurs on the ocean when it gets really cold as it has been now for days. The formations are caused by the gentle rocking of the waves which agitates slush and forms rounded blobs with upturned edges. He explains that this kind of action is far more common in the Arctic than in Rockport Harbor.
Isn’t it fascinating what nature can do? As interesting as this sight must be, I think I’d rather be in the warmer climes of Houston! I am grateful to Mark though for sharing this most interesting information.
i so appreciate your visit and the comments you leave behind
