Nothing like having a big piece of creepy seaweed inadvertently wrap itself around your lower leg as you stroll the beach shallows. Having never fully recovered from the movie “Jaws,” I instantly think I’ve been attacked by a shark.  

Cheap phobias aside, the attacking algae displays a curious combination of scarey ugliness and clammy beauty, especially with sunlight highlighting its translucency. A beach flower as it were.
