Throwing In The Towel

We escaped to the beach yesterday. It was just one of those days when you know you're on to a looser from the outset. Fin had surf school and although he only had to be dropped of at the meeting point in our local town, and was then being taken by mini bus to the beach, we decided to follow. A decision made about 6 minutes before we had to leave, so Fred had no trunks, Jack had no jumper and we had 1 towel between us!

The sea is so warm at the moment and that, of course, means jelly fish, lots and lots of them! Most of them are these chaps who are moon jellies, and according to different sources will either not be able to puncture human skin, or will occasionally give you a 'nettle like sting'. They are deadly if you happen to be plankton!
We did see what I'm 99% sure was a lions mane jelly though, which sting a bit worse, but it was only a little one and I didn't have the camera on me.

And just because it really was that sort of a day, we got ice creams.
