LIVING IT & RELIVING IT STARTS HERE

Fields of Gold Sargassum, April 9th.

The sargassum is a floating planktonic species of seaweed common in warm waters. It’s super thick this year and April’s bloom has been amazing.  The fresh crops are beautiful and I’m still looking for a baby seahorse. There is a smelly period but once dried out the plants prevent erosion and become one with the sand.
