These are not air bladders, but reproductive bodies at the tips of the branches. The haploid 'eggs' and 'sperm' are released directly into the sea, and fertilisation results in a diploid young pant.

Hi Neil, I'm pleased to remind you of summer holidays by the sea. Growing up in St.Andrews, I visited the seaside almost every day, it is one of my passions. You may want to check out some more photos to whet your appetite for the summer holidays to come this year :))
