A February storm deposited a good-sized bull kelp on the beach.

Bull kelp, Nereocystis luetkeana.

Not far away I found this giant kelp, Macrocystis. This is the one on the Monterey Bay Aquarium logo.

The storm also left a small conifer branchlet on the beach that goes nicely with a promising IPA my next door neighbor Eric gave me. The thing I like most about this is there are no footprints in sight.
