The other day I found giant kelp on the beach.
I had never seen seaweed that big before!
It had some round, air-filled bladders about the size of coconuts.
I brought two pieces home to dissect them.
The insides looked much like I imagined.
(There wasn't a mermaid or a baby shark inside.) :/
It didn't stink, which was a surprise.
It smelled a little like vinegar and banana leaves.
It was a little slimy, like aloe vera, but firm and translucent.
I used the kelp like a potato stamp.
I had fun and made a mess, as usual.
Someday soon, I'll go to a different beach, one with more junk.
Maybe I'll find something I can use to make jewelry?
