Wet and wonderful at the Hook

hook seaweed

My last visit to the Hook peninsula was an interesting one. The weather here, as to be expected where there is a lighthouse, can be changeable and I have been there in weather when you could hardly stand up. But on this occasion the sun shone, there was not a breath of wind and the tide was as low as I have seen it. The low tide meant I could see the seaweed perfectly and not just in the rockpools. If ever you needed confirmation that we should be eating seaweed the breathtaking beauty and abundance of these underwater gardens were it!

The sheer variety and freshness of all that seaweed actually looked delicious.

    Looks wonderful, I might have been tempted to have a paddle. So are you a seaweed forager?
