LAKE RETBA    Lake Retba, or Lac Rose, is a stunning pink lake in Senegal, Africa, located to the North of the Cap Vert peninsula.    The lake is obviously named for its bright pink waters, which are caused by the algae Dunaliella salina. The colour appears to be more vivid during the dry season, and as well as being pink, the lake also has a high salinity, similar to that of the Dead Sea, which allows people to float with little effort.

Lake Retba also has a high salt content, much like that of the Dead Sea, allowing people to float effortlessly in the massive pink water.

Oceans that will not mix! so cool! These two bodies of water were merging in the middle of The Gulf of Alaska and there was a foam developing only at their junction. It is a result of the melting glaciers being composed of fresh water and the ocean has a higher percentage of salt causing the two bodies of water to have different densities and therefore makes it more difficult to mix
