A huge pile of seagrass on the beach at Seacliff.
We've had strong winds lately and the seagrass has piled up higher than ever seen before all along the Adelaide coastal beaches.
Now, notice I have called this mass of sea vegetation seagrass not seaweed. Plants from the sea have a bad public image because we label the whole lot "weed". I can't actually help myself because unless I make a conscious effort to say seagrass or kelp I automatically call seaweed... seaweed. So next time you are about to make a belittling, pejorative, derogatory, unflattering and scurrilous reference to our plants of the sea as weed, which incidentally sustains life on the planet... think again... they have names and are not weeds.
We've experienced a dry autumn in South Australia but hopefully it is about to change. Dark clouds are approaching from the north. The trouble is even though we get a radar picture that would send Noah scurrying for his hammer and chisel the end result is a pathetic sprinkling that hardly wets the ground. We need more rain here at the driest Capital City in the driest continent on earth not counting Antarctica or the the Sahara...
