Galveston Seaweed 'Bumming' Holiday Beach Goers

 
Galveston Seaweed 'Bumming' Holiday Beach Goers
Posted Saturday, May 24th 2014 @ 7am

Memorial Day Weekend means it's time for sand between your toes, games on the beach and for the next few days in Galveston, giant mounds of seaweed.

"It takes up most of the beach and it smells," beachgoer Alex Robertson told KTRH TV partner KPRC Local 2.

"It doesn't smell good at all, actually," said Alex's friend Andu Marginean. "It kind of smells like sulfur I think. Like a fishy, sulfury smell."

The city is dealing with another major seaweed dump as it heads into the unofficial start of summer, just three weeks after one of its worst dumps in years.

Like then, crews have been working feverishly to push the seaweed against the seawall so beachgoers have a clear path down the beach. Some folks said it's natural and they've learned to deal with it.
