I am seeing more and more jellyfish washed up on the shore of our beach and have read that they are increasing in numbers all over the world, so much so that they are causing damage to places like nuclear plants, sinking ships that try to pull them up in nets and consuming fish in huge numbers. The increase is said to be due to the warming of the ocean waters and pollution. Once, years ago in the Caribbean, the water was full of pink jellyfish and I would get small stings where they brushed up against me. Of course, there are serious jellyfish that can kill you and even almost microscopic ones in the waters of Australia that can kill you in four minutes. Everyone thinks it’s a heart attack because they can’t see anything. Who knew, right?
Isn’t this scary? Looks like an alien of some sort. Maurice often goes out into the water after jogging to cool down but I don’t thin I want to after seeing this. Who knows what’s out there? Probably sharks too which also seem to be increasing along coastlines.
We got a kite to entertain kids when they are here but mostly they drift off to play in the sand if they are too young to understand how to fly a kite. This is Maurice flying the kite. My Iphone just wouldn’t take the image quickly enough to get the kite in the photo as it was moving very quickly back and forth, up and down.
