Giant Perennial Kelp
Macrocystis sp.

There were many pieces of seaweed and kelp along the shore. I liked how this one was laid out with the grooves in the sand where the water had eroded the beach in response to the kelp.

Location: Sealion Cove, Kruzof Island, Southeast Alaska

Previous: Sea Rocket Flower (Cakile edentula)
