The Season Begins!!!

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!


  1. Slithery things, but fortunately not stinky. A few people here pickle and eat them...very salty! They look better as baskets...or whips, lol.

  2. Looks like a bag of very long worms, lol. I'm certain you will make something beautiful out of them.


I always love to get comments!
