Tiny jellyfish at Martinique Beach

Martinique Beach

A sea gooseberry is not a jellyfish – title above not withstanding! But they really do look like jellyfish.

Recently we were walking at the beach and there were these amazing little beasties, the size of dimes to quarters, that looked like droplets of water on the sand.  They were scattered across the sand in strung out lines revealing where waves had washed and retreated. A short internet search turned up this excellent video of these sea gooseberries.

There are always neat things to see at the beach and Martinique Beach provincial park and it is such a great walking beach  – highly recommended.
