Root

This is a root you don't often see - this is the holdfast of some sea-weed torn from it's hold on the seabed and cast up on the shore after a storm.

That is really interesting, something I have never seen before. Is that kelp?
Thank you - and yes, I'm pretty sure it is a form of kelp.
We have kelp forests off the coast here too.
How unusual!
Thank you. Sometimes the seaweed can be quite pretty when it is washed up after a storm.
Very interesting! I'm always fascinated by what the tide brings in.
So am I - I like a walk along the tide-line. Easier for me than you, though!
Now that's something you don't see everyday! (especially those of us who don't live near an ocean. ;))

It is fairly commonplace for us - but then it struck me as an interesting subject for a lot of people - and I quite like the different colours and textures as well.

Fascinating! And you're right. I've never seen anything like that before.
I was thinking 'root... root...' and then it occurred to me that this was a slight variant that might interest people.
Something I've not seen before!
It's one of those things that is not all that unusual amongst the seaweed on the beach after a storm - but you only notice it if you are looking for it, if you see what I mean!
Neat kelp! We don't have quite that variety; it's fascinating to see the different types!
It's fairly much our basic seaweed - well, that and bladder-wrack.
This is a root I've never seen!
It's one of those odd things - you never really think of seaweed having roots until someone points it out!
