No problem! I spent a lot of time in my undergrad on the shore identifying species. And I have seen this one a lot.

I think it is actually Fucus spiralis and not Ascophyllum nodosum, but great shot!

What's really cool...if you look closely, you can see your reflection in one of the "bulbs". I just noticed that. May be an illusion, may be not! :)
