Seaweed invasion.

What's the deal with the seaweed in Galveston? Everything smells like sewage. Can't get to the wTer without climbing over mounds of it.

Unfortunately, this is not all that uncommon there.

Seaweed invasion.

Wasn't like that last year. Just a few bits here and there. Some places it is solid cover from the seawall to the water, like around 61st street.
Other places they are clearing it with tractors.

I would say what I heard one woman say about the smell... But I think it would get sensored.

Not uncommon, but much worse than usual this year.

Whoa. That is amazing. We had a little here, pretty much like usual, but nothing even remotely like that.

We were planning to stay a week. But came back home after 2 days. The whole seafront smells like sewage.

Oy! I've seen Galveston when there is seaweed on the beach, but that is unreal! I have gotten a whiff of "normal" seaweed build up and that is bad enough, so this must have been a nightmare. Such a bummer :-(

It all depends on currents & wind patterns. We haven't been to Galveston lately,But last week we were on South Padre & almost no seaweed.

There were places where it was more than 3 feet deep on the beach. Getting in the water, you were surrounded by it.
