Jellyfish and Goose Berries

I am currently sitting in my camper on the beach waiting for the wind to die down so we can go for a little walk. The wind has been terrible today. We tried to sit out on the beach but after a few hours, we could not take it anymore. The wind was blowing so hard that we were getting sand blasted. 

We enjoy our walks. We see things, meet people and make friends. Last night we walked a mile down a side road just to get a good ice cream cone from a little ice cream shop. It was exactly one mile from the campground. 

While we have been here, we have taken several walks down the beach. I love to explore sea life and gaze at the beauty of the ocean as the sun sets. 
Speaking of sea life, we have came across a few different kinds of Jellyfish. The most common is the Cannon Ball Jellyfish which is harmless. If you walk the beaches you have seen these. 

After seeing some articles telling everyone to “beware of Man O Wars”, They have been washing up on the shore this week and have a venomous sting. They will even sting you on the sand if you get close enough. 
So. Far I have seen five. They have beautiful colors but ugly the same. 

Another Jellyfish we came across is the Blue Button Jellyfish. These will not sting but can cause skin irritation if handled too long. 
I did not attempt to find out. I thought it was pretty in a weird way too. 

I seen a lot of little blobs of clear Jelly. They are called Sea Gooseberries. These are harmless and you can pick them up. I didn’t take my chances. I found this out after I came in and did a google search. 

We are half way through our vacation. So far things are ok around here while back home seems to be in chaos with riots. I hope where you are, you are staying safe from covid and other crazy things going on in the world. 

Meanwhile, I think I’m becoming a Marine Biologist. Haha


  1. Glad you guys are having an 'overall' good trip. I do love the ocean, but I prefer it on a ship. Earlier it was beaches, but the wind drives my ears and devices crazy.
    I have never seen the blue button Jelly fish. But there isn't a much more relaxing thing than walking a beach and just looking at the shells, seal life and objects that wash ashore.
    Have a great time. From back here.

  2. It's so nice that you get to relax at the beach and take nice walks. The jelly fish are pretty but scary at the same time. Take care and enjoy!

  3. That man of war is nasty looking!
    I didn't realize there were so many different kinds of jellyfish.
    It is nice to walk along the beach. Haven't done that in years.
    As you probably already know I prefer the woods. :)

  4. Wow! I’ve never seen a blue button jellyfish. I
    Love walking on the beach. It’s one of the most blissful things I’ve ever done.

  5. That is pretty awesome. Walking the beach is so relaxing. Happy weekend Lisa.

  6. Oh good to hear you are having a great trip! Boy, it is needed isnt it. We are talkin about camping, just in a tent when it gets cooler in the fall. Love the pics of the jellyfish, how cool! But boy, they hurt if you get stung, I did one year! I love walks on the beach.
    enjoy your week!
