Beautiful Consett Bay

The majority of sargassum seaweed makes its way to the edge of the shore, accumulating in a huge bed up to a foot high. This affects fishing in low waters for some who toss a line, and we’ve seen two turtles a few miles along the same stretch, who lost their lives amidst the dense mass. Farm and garden wise, dried seaweed is apparently a super fertlizer and snail/slug repellent. Fnding out about the cause of the recent invasion as well as the possible beneficial uses it has to the island, is key – after all, it’s here.


In deep water, streams of seaweed appear out of the blue and float by like mustard-coloured ribbons.

Hi there, I'm indra Denys , writing you from Barbados. Here you’ll find encouragement, creative career tips for freelancers and refreshment resources for women who are ready to shape a thriving business that aligns with their wellness. I'm a new creation, singer, blogger, content coordinator and publishing entrepreneur who's travelled to 20 destinations so far, and is now working-from-home. Balancing housework with business tasks is an interesting change of tempo I'm dancing to. On a quest to grow more grateful each day. As a teen I almost gave up on life; now as a woman saved by grace, I'm living joyfully with purpose, encouraging others to enjoy moments of refreshment daily and celebrating sisters who shine through their gifts with grace right here on 'Joy within' blog through guest posts and features. You'll also see pics of creation from nature walks along the way. Thanks for joining the journey, remember to follow the blog for firsthand updates on new posts, podcast episodes and events.
