Anyone making their own salt?

We are fortunate to have the pristine Pacific ocean nearby.
We collect sea water from Port Renfrew BC. About as pure sea water as possible.
We strain the water through a coffee filter. Then into a large SS pot. We do 12 cups at a time. Simmer away for a couple of hours until all that's left is sea salt. Twelve cups of sea water yields about 128 grams of salt. It has quite a 'salty' taste and a subtle smell of the sea. A small pinch goes a long way.
Do any of you make your own sea salt? Do you add anything to add flavor? If so what?
