An unusual sight

In November 2006, the yacht 'Maiken' was traveling in the South Pacific when they came across a weird sight -

... It was sand in the water, and the sand was floating ON TOP of the waves..





This is not a beach; it is floating on the water.



The trail left by the yacht..through the sand





And then this was spotted... Ash and steam rising from the ocean...



And, while they were watching...





A brand new island formed....




A plume of black ash...

Can you imagine the thrill of being the first & only people to see a new island being created , seemingly from nowhere?

Mother Nature in all her amazing spleandour!!! An awesome sight to behold.
