Living at a beach, we have a house rule - no breakfast unless you've had a walk and/or a swim. Whether walking or swimming, it's not unusual to come across kelp. On the seashore, the kelp tends to be brown and gnarled. In the water, it is a magical waving mass of golden chartreuse clinging to the rocks with small fish darting in and out. Yesterday, the surf dumped me into some floating kelp. It was kind of scratchy but since it was close at hand, I brought some home to photograph.
