Don't Say I Didn't Warn You
Jellyfish. Sea Nettles. Whatever you want to call them, they are unpleasant to encounter. In the past, we've seen them during our more southern trips. Cambridge is practically famous for them. Our usual haunts are typically jellyfish free until the later summer months. It looks like we might not be so lucky this year. Scientists are predicting a large swarm. Looks like I'll be checking the sea nettle probability stats this summer and checking the status of the meat tenderizer on board. (For anyone who doesn't know, meat tenderizer is supposed to ease a jellyfish sting. I've never had to try it myself.) Even if we run into a bunch of jellyfish -- A bad day on the water is always better than a good day anywhere else.
