Fields of Gold Sargassum, April 9th, 2011

Sargassum is a floating, planktonic species of seaweed common in warm waters.

This year it is super thick and April’s bloom has been amazing.  The fresh crops are beautiful and I’m still looking for a baby seahorse. There’s definitely a smelly period, but once it’s dried out the plants prevent erosion and become one with the sand.
