Sea creatures

Jellyfish come in a vast array of colors and sizes. There are jellyfish which are purple, green, yellow, white, opaque, translucent and blue. The most popular blue jellyfish would have to be the blue bottle jellyfish which is also known as the portuguese man of war, which is not really a jellyfish at all. This blue beauty is carnivorous and feeds on smaller fish and other small marine critters. Another popular blue jellyfish to read about is the Blue Blubber Jellyfish.

Yesterday I took a long walk along the beach. I was walking along a section of the beach that I had not been to before. The tides had washed a lot of things up on the sand. Blue creatures, sea onions and driftwood. I also saw the large white jellyfish that I had seen before and some fish bones in the sand.

Couldn't find any pictures on google of the plants I refer to as sea onions. Large quantities of plants that looked like they were just pulled from the garden, white bulbs on the end of long brown leafy stems.

  1. As a Midwesterner landlocked in the middle of the country, I must admit I am very impressed with your beach and sea creatures. Jellyfish! Who knew they came in colors? I sure didn't. Amazing. I think it is fascinating info. I'm more a fount of info about cows, pigs, and farms. I hope you post more stuff like this. I really enjoyed it.

  2. Jeeez... I really miss being there sometimes. I look at my videos I took from there quite often... my dolphins!

    Have you gone as far down as Marker 33? That's where Homer got stuck ... so pretty there. Marker 19 was where I spent the night a couple of times.

  3. How has the weather been? We've been in long pants most days out here, with some jackety times.

  5. Those blue fish or jelly fish are really pretty. Of course I sure wouldn't want to be stung by one. I miss walking on the beach its been about 27 yrs. :(
