'There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar: I love not man the less, but Nature more.’

The Ice Bucket Challenge with Frozen Laver
This video comes with Hebridean wind quality. The frozen laver came from these rocks some weeks ago. Laver freezes as hard as a rock, unlike some other species of seaweed. I took the frozen laver balls down to the beach and filled my pressure cooker pan (which incidentally cooks kelp stipes superbly) with seawater. I popped the frozen laver balls into the seawater and waited .... the August seawater was cold.
