SEA CREATURES!

 On a recent trip to Destin, Florida, these curious and amazing sea creatures were everywhere. There were thousands of them in the Gulf, as well as in the Bay. They were slimy and yet somewhat sticky and quite heavy. We could see them breathing!  Although you can't ell from the pictures, some of them looked solid white, while others had a pink or lavender tinge to them. I'm not sure if they were some kind of jellyfish or sea anemones? In all my years of being a "beach bunny" (lol) I've never encountered these creatures before. Anybody know what these are?

  2. Those are amazing. I've never seen anything quite like it. At first glance I thought it was some sort of jelly fish, but I'm thinking you wouldn't be able to handle them like that if they were. Cool pictures. La

  4. They really are beautiful - though someone is SO much braver than me to pick them up bare handed!

  5. I agree - from what I've heard about Jellyfish - you shouldn't be able to handle them - very beautiful and very curious!

  10. ODE TO WATER

    Water seekers cannot get
    Too much moisture, too much wet;
    Though they seek both far and wide,
    They will not be satisfied
    Till their eyes behold a place
    Filled with water, every space;
    Lovely stuff, that H2O—
    Water, water, let it flow!

  11. Thanks, everybody!
    I've just been told that these are called "cannonball jellyfish" I wish I had known that sooner! I googled it and found lots of very interesting information.
