Summer is winding down, the crowd in LB is thinning, and J&I decided to venture down to the beach for the 3rd time this year. We got to don our newly purchased swimsuits before the season is over.
J’s not one to buy new things unless absolutely necessary. He’s had his old swimming trunks for 15 years, and had it not been for the fact that I told him it looks hideous, he would have hung onto it.
I just couldn’t look at it anymore and bought him a new pair of board shorts.
He was walking back excitedly to show me something he’d found. What he had in his hand was a by-the-wind sailor.
We had just read about these little creatures last week, and got to see it in person today. These hydrozoans live out in the open sea, and humans rarely see them unless they get blown ashore.
