Jelly Fish

Me and my daughter took a dip in the ocean and we were fine...until we saw a jelly fish! We came running out of the water like we were in a Jaws movie!
People were still swimming despite the warnings.



Speaking of Jaws. As we were standing at the edge of the water, my daughter jumped back and said "Mom, I just saw a big fish! No kidding! It must have been about 3 foot long" (as she did her hand measure). Another couple aproached us and said, "Did yall see the shark too?" Yes there was a shark lerking in the knee deep waters. My concern was still on the tiny jelly fish. 

Yesterday a couple people were stung by jelly fish.. A kid was stung ...twice. OK im trying to come to grips with why if your stung once would you go back in to get stung again?
Kids!


The life guards have put up their warnings and are not allowing anyone past knee deep. 

Ill stick to paddleing around in the tide pools for now....until something touches my foot!


Ah the drama of the ocean.

  2. And Jelly sounds so friendly! LOL I love the horse picture. No matter how big a man/woman you are that: SOMETHING TOUCHED MY FOOT thing is THERE!
    Good entry and very foolish of anyone to show contempt for a jelly fish or a shark.
    Play in the tide pools... Smart!

  6. It's that time of year. My daughter got stung a couple of summers ago. Left red streaks on her leg for days. It's a risk, but sometimes you've just got to go in the water. Laughed at the horse!
