    We’re on vacation to celebrate a friend’s birthday in Miami Beach this weekend. It’s very windy but of course I head straight to the ocean.

    Much to my surprise the beach is littered with these:


    At which point I switch to a look-but-don’t-touch attitude about the water at this beach. Much like my attitude at the nightclubs along this beach lol.

    Wow, I've seen big blobs of "jelly" on the beach up and down the California coast before, but never with tentacles like that, so deeply colored

    Did you do any swimming?

    I didn’t try going in the ocean with those guys around. There are a lot of them. At least not without covering up like a wet suit which I don’t have with me.

    It’s very windy on the beach anyway. The sand is blowing hard enough to feel like tiny needles hitting your legs the whole time. My wife lasted about 60 seconds on the beach.

    The kitesurfers are pretty amazing though, apparently this is exactly the weather they like! Pretty amazing to watch.

    I would love to go snorkeling in the keys nearby but apparently “there’s no time for that this trip”
