Seaweed Photo Shoot (A.K.A. Normal Beach Activity)

Seaweed Photo Shoot

If it wasn’t for blogging, I never would have picked up this seaweed.

Had I seen it lying on the beach a year ago – or even a month ago – I would have barely spared it a glance.

But then Skye and I saw CJane’s August seaweed photo shoot.

So when we came across our own seaweed find, we just couldn’t pass it up.

This is one of the main benefits of making your best friend take up your obsessions.

Well, this and a combined therapy bill.

Though we decided to only put a small piece on our bodies.

(Seaweed feels grody.)

(In other words, don’t try this at home.)

(Assuming your home is the ocean.)

(Though I guess in that case you’re probably used to the salty, slick feeling.)

(Feel free to proceed as usual.)

Oh, she’s working that seaweed.

And quite nutritious, assuming you’re low on iodine.

(Aren’t you glad I’m here to help you with your iodine needs?)

I’m just as enthused.

Though I’m also distracted by all the other people on the beach.

They didn’t seem to understand the deeper meaning of our strange love of seaweed.

Though we considered yelling at them it was a satiric take on a Utahan blog, we decided that might not go the way we hoped.

And who really thinks this scene requires an explanation?

Then Skye found this bug in her bathing suit and we learned why most people don’t drape their bodies with seaweed.

So, an adorable photo shoot and a life lesson.

Now that’s a successful afternoon.

We actually got more looks with the seaweed than using our feet to dig the umbrella hole

Which now that I write it makes it seem as though we were a tragic comedy show for the other beach-goers,

    Hilarious! Your friend’s bathing suit is uber cute. What beach are you visiting? It is absolutely gorgeous!!

    If only all our days concluded with a photo shoot and a life lesson.

    (Or at least no bugs in our bathing suits…)

    This post is too funny! Hilarious. Your blog always makes me smile!

    You just reminded me that I still need to wash my swimsuit.

    I’m picturing a line of people at the beach, giving a wary eye, trying to figure out if seaweed fetishists. And if so, where the midget with the video camera was (because we know that all good fetish porn requires midgets behind, and in front of, the camera).

    Now, though, I’m in the mood to head to the local sushi place & order a great bit helping of seaweed salad.

    Honestly? I gotta give it to Skye on this one. She owned that seaweed look.

  • Bodaciousboomer September 20, 2011, 3:39 pm

    I love her retro looking swimsuit with the cherries on it. But I thought everyone knew that seaweed makes terrible headbands.

    Love that first shot. A very great composition it is. And clever what you did with seaweed. Thanks! Love that pink bathing suit.

    This post made me all shuddery & twitchy…I think I just developed a seaweed phobia.

  • Mindee@ourfrontdoor September 20, 2011, 5:23 pm

    Perhaps if I had photographic evidence of all of my life lessons I’d quit forgetting them and than having to re-learn them over and over.

    You’re a thinker Megan.

    I LOVE your friend’s bathing suit. And you are hilarious. And I’m trying to contain my jealousy that you can wear a bikini! But this comment wasn’t supposed to be about my mental hangups. Hope you’re having a great week!

  • Elisa September 20, 2011, 8:31 pm

    That looks like SOOOO much fun.

    P. S. My second daughter’s name is “Sky.” I love that name :0)

    My dog loves to collect seaweed. She has been known to spend half an hour swimming out, collecting it and dragging it back to a giant pile on the beach. But that has also led me to discover the myriad of small creatures that live in it. You guys are much braver than me with your seaweed draping!

  • nursemyra September 21, 2011, 4:45 am

    I love your smattering of freckles

  • blackhuff September 21, 2011, 6:34 am

    You two are having fun, I see :)

  • Sharon September 21, 2011, 11:25 am

    Both your bathing suits are so cute! Looks like such a fun day, I miss hanging out with you guys!

  • alonewithcats September 21, 2011, 11:04 pm

    You two are smokin’ with your ‘weed.

  • brianne September 30, 2011, 3:37 pm

    Ya’ll are brave! I would be scared of seaweed syphilis. Something that slimy has to be carrying some sort of disease. Super cute suits BTW! ^_^
