One of the pluses (or minuses, depending on the situation) of crystalline waters is that you can see just about everything around you. So when we were enjoying a beach walk and saw some curious items floating around in the water, we had to check it out. Come to find out, we were looking at jellyfish of some kind. Though I am no great fan of these things, since I know what at least some species are capable of, I did find them to be quite pretty floating and pulsing through the water. These were literally just a few feet off the beach in very shallow water.
