Shots at Scarborough South include milkweed pods, dried Laminaria held up in the sun, a dead fish, and an impressive collection of drift lining the shore. At Pier 5 my usual parking space was blocked by a crane, but I discovered the plaque for Pier 5 after I parked on scenic Ocean Drive. The close-ups show drift and algae-covered rocks in the water, small dried Fucus, Dasya, and Ulva floating in the water, and a fragment of Palmaria with holes--maybe the meal of snails and urchins. Click here to see a wide view of the lines of fresh and bleached drift algae on the shore.
