Medusas of the Sea

Jellyfish in Costa RicaA few weeks ago I wrote about how the water has been really, really cold.  And since then, what I’ve learned, is that when the water turns cold like this, a not-so-fun creature arrives.  The jellyfish.  Thousands of them.

I’ve been stung by jellyfish while snorkeling in the past.  But it was always the tiny, almost invisible, jellyfish.  Not like these big ones with the colorful heads and long, scary tentacles.

So did I go out in the water that day?  No…other people did and several were stung.

I’ll wait until the water returns to its normal, warm state and the current drags the jellyfish out of the area.  Which I’m hoping will be soon as I’d really like to get back out on the water.

Pura vida…Chrissy
