Down on the beach

walking on the beach

A brief sunny interlude to enjoy down on the beach. As you can see by the seaweed, the seas around the UK are rich indeed. I used to hate this stuff around my legs when I was a kid. It used to frighten me to death to suddenly feel my legs gripped by something unknown beneath the waves. I always imagined I was being attacked by a giant octopus rather than seaweed.

    A true pleasure, the sights, sounds and smells of an ocean beach, seaweed or not.

    I would hate that too. Seaweed can be very dangerous for swimmers. Do you ever take some home for compost?

      Yes, sometimes. I’ve grown to like it much more now I’m older and it’s fascinating to turn it over and see what’s hiding in there when beach-combing.

    Me too – seaweed – yuk. This looks like it could be in tasmania – one of the biggest industries there now is kelp.

      I’ve learned to love it.

        really? I don’t think I have it in me to love seaweed, most I’ve seen smells too bad! 🙂

        It is so useful I’ve forgiven it for scaring me as a child.
