Seaweed makes me very happy. Every time I find myself on a beach (which, unfortunately, isnt often) I look for the seaweed the tide brings in and leaves. The east coast (north of the Carolinas) doesnt have especially cool seaweed. Its usually a beautiful green swampy color, but essentially a great big mush on the beach. Seaweed on the west coast (south of LA) is super cool. Its structured and brightly colored. Full of air bags and fins and rippled, succulent, off-shoots. Some day I would love to go scuba diving in a seaweed garden.
