I was wondering what they could be made of, and how they came there, when of a sudden I was interrupted in my reveries by a loud shriek, and perceived a strong smell of something burning.

I ran to the side where he had disappeared, but could see nothing but a few eddying circles as the tide rushed quickly past.
