    Not just your account Colin. PB is doing all sorts of weird things at present.

    Interesting shots there. I studied these for a while. Do you know what causes it?

    Yeah, gremlins in PB for sure...uploading images I didn't select,wrong tags ,doubling up, wrong sizes and images disappearing, someone needs to get their act together at PB atm.

    The sand boils are simple air pockets trapped beneath the sand, most noticeable on a fast rising tide. When the tide recedes there are often bulges in the sand full of air and it's kinda fun to jump on them ...not that I do that.

    Worms --- um, not sure if you meant irritable bowels or bubbles on the beach but I reckon I am safe in saying that worms will influence both.

    very unusual aren't they when you haven't seen them before. It's like the sea is boiling.
    I think we'd all love to have a go at jumping on them.
    Thanks for looking....Cheers,

    No smell ...unless the Sea Weed ...boom boom !


    It's just air that gets trapped under the sand, not always evident, only I think when climatic, tidal conditions are suitable.

    No pop? Mother nature creating fun things to poke and prode and not including an accompanying noise? Shameful!

    Only in Adelaide of course - appropriate. Could make a good movie out of that, especially in reverse, and call it TRAF.
