We're on our way to a Halloween and Trick or Treating party, so this is a turbo blog, if ever there was one. But several people seemed intrigued by my mention of my costume. So here it is. I am a Kelp Forest. Kelp is one of the most important plants in the Monterey Bay ecosystem and it's quite fascinating stuff. Last night at Britta's Halloween Party I won a prize for Most Original Costume. More details to follow. Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone!
