This is the place where we collected our algae. It is named No Name Point. I’m not exactly sure how this is possible.
Here’s a close up of our lovely tide pools. Most of the brown stuff you see is Ascophyllum nodosum, the most common seaweed in these parts. I could tell you more about it than you really want to know.
I though this was a nice shot of the lighthouse visible from the island.
This is us looking over samples back in the lab. We try to key out the algae, and we also pressed some. Its pretty interesting, although invertebrates are more interesting. You’d be surprised to know all the things you can discover about algae. For example, Carl discovered that you can use the floats as squirt guns.
That’s Carmel, looking very intently at something. Look at all that lovely algae up in front too!
