Praia Adraga (Lisbon Coast): extraordinary sights today

 Praia Adraga: not soap suds but foam from the sea!

We went to Praia Adraga today intending to eat at the very good restaurant there that specialises in fish. Unfortunately it appaers to be closed due to damage from the recent storms and very rough seas. The visit was, however, worth while as the sea was a mass of foam! I have never seen anything like it.

The beach covered with heaving foam as the sea water moved under it 
Most of the sand seems to have been washed away

The sea! 

 Bubble bath!

The restaurant looking sorry and abandoned at the moment!
