The beach was strewn with seaweed today. Rows of seaweed, clumps of seaweed, individual strands of seaweed. I wonder why it washes up like this sometimes and not other times. The water was wonderful, though. A little seaweed floating around, but not a nuisance. Otherwise, perfect. No current to speak of. Gentle waves. Warm water. And hardly a soul to be seen. Most schools must be in session, or nearly so. The village is quiet too. A nice respite from the busy days of July and early August.
