On my last walk to the beach before we headed home I got caught in the rain, as did this Welcome swallow.
This is most likely Ophiopsammus maculata, the snake brittle star. Two were washed up on the sand on successive tides.
Most of the jellyfish were dead and broken up by the time they washed ashore, but this Lion's mane was still alive and swimming in a rock pool.
Hundreds of Crystal jellyfish and tens of these Lion's mane jellyfish were washing up on the beach over a few days.
My intention with this page is to highlight one photo from each outing and tell its story in a couple of sentences. The subjects will vary - it will be whatever caught my eye or was most special on that day.
