Locals have long known that Black’s Beach is the location where the tops come off. But until now they have never known why. Observations on this excursion have concluded the reason Mermaids choose this spot is the kelp. Macrocystis contains algin. Only recently have humans discovered this. Now, kelp byproducts are found in soap, toothpaste,hand creams etc. For centuries the Mermaids have known the regenerating power of the kelp and thus selected this beach with its huge offshore Macrocystis forest as a place to molt and regenerate. Tomorrow the regeneration process.
