Today, the weather has been absolutely awful. Rain, wind and really cold. The ocean looked like the inside of a washing machine, as there was so much white water and waves travelling in all directions. I didn’t see any surfers about today.
I braved the weather and got absolutely soaked taking this photograph of some kelp that had been torn at its roots due to the very strong currents. This is where the kelp ended up, entangled in the fence of the ocean pool. To me, it looked as if it was being held captive and it was longing to be set free. Or perhaps it was trying to get in to the relatively calm water of the ocean pool, for a well needed/earned relaxing holiday.
