This is the kelp I was referring to in the previous post. It's piled up down near the tide pools at Heisler Point. It stacked on both sides of the entrance to the tile pools.
I imagine the kelp problem, at Main Beach especially, was the reason for the removal of the kelp beds many years ago. Now that they're back they just pile it up at Heisler Point until the end of the Summer season and then they transport it somewhere.
So until the end of Summer you get a nose full every time you visit the tide pools.
And we still have the month of August. The kelp pile will just get bigger, and bigger.
