So I got in, even considering a young boy had found a jelly fish in a hole near the water:
So I got in and swam slowly and carefully down toward the deep side, where I usually look first. And this is what I saw:
They are hard to see. If you look carefully, you can see the "box" near the left and then the long tentacles. Just swimming along as if it had not a care in the world! Which I guess it doesn't.
So I turned around, got out and told the lifeguard. He announced over the PA system that one had been spotted. Bummer for those who are on vacation! I told one couple about seeing the jelly. And props to them, they turned around and walked back to their car. I told them to try again tomorrow, as they are rarely in the water 3 days in a row! HOPE SO!
The octopuses were smarter than I, as I didn't see any. They had probably slid deep into their dens and stayed out of trouble!
But earlier, I was treated to seal action:
Hanging out on the beach.
Here's hoping the jellies disappear before my swim tomorrow...
