In the last month or so, there have been a lot of purple jellyfish washing up on the beach.
My friend who is a surfer says that's an indication that the water is warmer.

Evidently these are called Black Jellyfish, and are rarer than I originally thought.
More info here

They sadly seem to be dotting the beach, especially on Fiesta Island.
The dogs don't seem to be bothered by them, nor interested in disturbing the jello-ish mass.

Eewwww...I have never heard of black jellyfish before. The experts say the oceans are getting warmer, and I wonder how this can be, if the icecaps are melting? One would think all that ice would make the water colder...but on further reflection I guess not. The fact that the icecaps are melting is a sure indication of the planet warming up :-(
