Still stormy today — and look at the new amazing kelp that washed up! There were enormously long “strands” of kelp in addition to these examples of baby mini bladders and huge round ones.  The foam was also abundant, making areas near the shore look like fields of baked alaska bubbly meringue.

It was windy and much of the sand seemed covered by layers of stones that hadn’t been distributed there yesterday.  The high tide was quite high and the seas rather rough; the waves must have carried the rocks to previously bare areas.  It will be interesting to see what the beach looks like when this period of rain is over.

There were few people on the beach, with one intrepid soul riding his bicycle, winding among the stones.  No one in the water, unsurprising. Those of us on the beach were a bit more bundled up than usual, although it wasn’t as much cold as it was windy.

Forecast for tomorrow: sun and more beauty.  Meanwhile, people suffer and are afraid — in Ukraine, in Syria, in Uganda, in Venezuela, in too many places —
