Invasion of the Jellys...

Numerous Jellys along the high tide line at WR#17, July 17, 2012
A "Jelly" near the high tide line, Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at approx. 7 pm at Will Rogers Tower #17

Up and down the coastline of Central Section, these jellies (juvenile jellyfish) have been getting washed up on shore with the rising tide and surf.  These particular jellies were seen on Will Rogers earlier this evening in the area of Tower #17.

A few minutes later we came across Capt. Scott Grigsby on patrol (see below) and he informed us that these jellies were the size of marbles about a month ago, whereas they have now grown to several inches in diameter and circumference.  In another month or so, Scott also indicated that they jellies will grow into the typical purple jellyfish that we get when the water warms.  In this regard, it was said to be 68 degrees in the ocean today at Will Rogers...  so get your swimming in now cuz there will be jellyfish to contend with next month most probably...
