Beach walk at Sandown Bay

Our walk this morning along the beach from Kleinmond, east towards the mouth of the Bot River Lagoon was attended by 9 Hurriers.  We had perfect walking weather with overcast cool conditions and no wind at all.  Of great interest was the proliferation of small jellyfish that have washed up on the beach.  There were literally millions of them and at times walking became quite difficult.  I have managed to identify them as predominantly Cape compass jelly (Chrysaora agulhensis).  They are brought ashore by strong winds and tides.  Although small they can give a sting that is apparently equal to a bee sting, so we were wise not to attempt swimming.

We walked exactly 13 kms in exactly 3 hours!
