On my daily walk on the beach today, there were a little surprise for me...
A beautiful blue/purple thing was washed up on the beach.
Turns out it's not something to pick up/play with/touch etc. It's a quite mean jellyfish!
They come from time to time, but it's the first time ever I have seen it since I arrived at the end of September, so I guess it's not often. The tides bring sand, in and out. The beach changes from week to week. Sometimes there's more sand, other times less. Turns out the tide brings other things as well!
So... if you see one of these, stay away! They can burn quite badly.
At least this one floats, so it's easier to spot, than those who are deeper in the water.
If nothing else, it's like a beautiful work of art - at a distance.
Have you ever seen these? Or been stung by a jellyfish?
I would love some tips on what to do if you get stung, you know, just in case...
