We were in the south of the island for the weekend. The beach was covered in red seaweed. I have not seen anything like it before. It made for an amazing contrast of colors - the beach had a blue tint to it, the trees seemed greener and the water seemed bluer. It was a wonderful gift from mother nature to see. it did make it difficult for the turtles to nest and the baby turtles to get to the sea - but there were some wonderful men who helped the baby turtles get to the sea.
