3. Do they come every year or is this year different? the sea was surprisingly warm 17 deg C.
4. Do they go to Abersoch to sting the the rich B's off the Warren.
My riders left the water pretty sharpish when they spotted them
Why use a duffnut??? You could have used a jellyfish!!!
They are very common in the summer - probably a barrel one if they were big - quite harmless.
On the other hand it could have been a Lion's Mane Jellyfish which does sting - apparently like a wasp sting but as with ALL stinging creatures what is harmless to one person could kill another if they are allergic to it......
