Number 8 Handa Terrace looks suburban until you look at the map! Nice Duncan.

The key things I look for to

The key things I look for to be sure this is oarweed is that nothing is growing on the stype (stem) the weed is too heavy for the stem so it tends to bend over when out of the water and it is held to the rock by a claw like holdfast. If you get the chance having a look at the holdfast is great as lots of things tend to live within it.
