Newsletter 4-28-14 – The Sargassum Is Back With A Vengeance

Welcome to the beach and the annual arrival of the Sargassum, “the genus may be best known for it’s planktonic (free-floating) species”! The seaweed has arrived. It came in Saturday morning early and continued through Sunday. Clyde and Kurt took measurements this morning. It’s 4′ 6″ high and 40′ wide. Personally, I’ve never seen it so thick, so high or so fast and all happening in one weekend. If any of the rest of you can claim bragging rights to witnessing worse, contact us and we’ll arrange to post your pictures!! Here are some of ours.
