Well done to Christine, beach comber extraordinaire, as I write she is the only one to guess correctly! I wish I could tell you more about this seaweed but as it is so decayed I couldn’t identify it when I  searched. Isn’t it remarkable? Every scrap of colour and moisture has disappeared and you can see it’s skeleton if you click to enlarge.  I’d love to know how old it is. I found it at Beer and as that is on the Jurassic Coast perhaps its been lying there for millennia. Or perhaps it arrived with the winter storms! It’s surprisingly strong and survived being crushed in the bottom of my camera bag for several hours.

Has anyone seen anything similar? Any sciencey people able to explain?

  1. The texture is what throws me off. Never in a million years would I guess this is seaweed. I learn something new every days and every other day HERE. 😀 Nice Haiku too. So many layers to one photo.

I would love to hear from you . . .
