Never saw so much Sargassum Seaweed on SBB.

Wow!! Isn't that BSV on that beach to the right? Carol's photos certainly didn't show anything like that! I guess she and Eric left just in time!

Wow, that certainly does not look very nice.I have never seen it that bad on that beach. It looks like beaches that have not been affected in other years have lots of it this time.

That looks to be directly in front of El Zafiro. I hope it clears up. It became a favorite of ours last trip.

Beachside is immediately to the right, yes. There was no seaweed when we were there and we just left June 26. It sort of looks to be confined almost to in front of El Zafiro.

Benni--boy that looks bad. It almost looks clear in front of Beachside, or is that the angle?

The seaweed is very thick and covers most of El Zafiro beach front. The area seems today to be confined to this end of SBB but BSV HAS LESS seaweed and it is being raked up as I write this report.iI wouldn't go swimming in the area today. It doesn't smell but is disgusting and hopefully the sea will pull it back out soon.
