I've had a few unsuccessful trips to the beach searching for kelp which begins drifting in from May through September or so. On Monday I finally found a few assorted bits here and there but the season began today with a huge "raft" on the shore of. McNeil Bay.... it took 40 minutes to untangle and bag it. It's enough for at least one and a half baskets. The next step is to hang and dry it.
Here's the bagged harvest!
