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,
