Environmental Disaster?

I decided to walk over to Glass Beach today, mainly to look at the G-P property from the north end for more photo opportunities. I got to a ledge above the beach and was distracted by dark streaks on the beach. Oh oh! I’m thinking oil spill! Looked like heavy crude.

I worked my way down to the beach to take a closer look.

I felt some of the stuff. It wasn’t oily.

And then I knew what it was. It was those little blue jelly fish thingies with sails.

Thousands and thousands of them! Washed up on the beach!

When I got home I Googled them.

Sure enough. I found them, (aren’t search engines wonderful!).

Velellas! Read all about them here.

As for my G-P photo? This was the old dynamite storage shed.
