Paddling With Jelly Fish



My daughter went stand up paddling down in Coronado last week. The ocean temperatures are up to around 70 degrees now and that means jelly fish have moved close to shore.



There were hundreds of jelly fish in the bay, easily visible just beneath her board.



Jelly fish spend the majority of their time looking for food, and although their tenacles pack a hefty sting, they're not aggressive.



These photographs of what was just below the surface were taken by my neighbor Kevin.

They are strange, surreal creatures, arent't they... kind of creepy, yet hypnotic at the same time! Wonderful photos! Happy Day, Golden West ((HUGS))
