We're on vacation at our place on the coast and having a wonderfully relaxing time. We've been out fishing several times and have enjoyed some afternoon summer showers.
While we were out fishing today, we came upon an unusual (for me) sight. Our boat was surrounded by hundreds of jellyfish. I wish I'd had my camera, but we don't take it on the boat (and if you could see my book you'd understand why! It's in the oven now trying to dry out...lol). It looked like we were floating in a sea of softballs! Soft, gelitanious(is that a word?), floaty softballs. It was interesting to see them. Apparently those are not the stingy kind, but I didn't take any chances. I also didn't feel the need to bring any home and try to cook them.... although the website I linked to said they were edible, I didn't feel the need to find out.
We also saw about four large stingrays swimming off to the side of our boat. They were awesome. They looked to be about 18" apart from wingtip to wingtip.
A whole lot of fishing was done, but not a lot of catching... and no "keepers." The final score was 7 hardhead catfish, 4 ladyfish, and 2 speckled trout(too small to keep, darn it!)
Now... off to do some errands, cause even at the shore there are things to do, places to go and people to see....
