Me-Now-Views; Less Speak More Peek - Recycled

From May 2014

This week, a peek and poke around a rock pool at Toward Point.



Rose quartz is strewn everywhere as is milky quartz.  

Lots of Pelvetia Canaliculata (bladder-wrack, top), Phycodrys  (right) and Ulva Lactuca ('sea lettuce' below)



Another of the bladder-wrack...Ficus sp.







...then there's all the molluscs. Limpets, whelks, clams...

Some living.  Some not.

  8. You could eat the sea lettuce couldn't you? I wonder what it tastes like.

      Actually, just about every seaweed is edible, but all require particular forms of preparation. Yxx
