Aloha! Sorry I haven’t written in a while. But I have some news. Last week I went to the beach and saw something that looked like a toy in the water. Thinking it was a missing toy, I picked it up. Bad idea. It turned out that the “toy” was a Portugese Man of War aka a Jellyfish. It’s sting hurts! Check out a picture of it floating in the water and some facts about it here. And if you do get stung and you need to know how to treat it, click here. Another thing you can do is try Seasafe. Its like sunscreen only it can protect you from the stinging cells of a jellyfish. Here is this link to the website. If its a very bad sting, best thing to do is call 911.
