Ophelia

The remnants of hurricane Ophelia are hitting Ireland – the worst storm in over 50 years.  On the south coast we are getting some wind, and some creatures washing up on the beach.

From the BBC:

A warning has been issued after more dangerous jellyfish-like creatures washed up on UK beaches.

The UK Coastguard has told people not to handle the Portuguese man-of-war, following an increase in the number appearing along the south coast.

It followings a spike in sightings across the Welsh coastline last week.

They were reported at Hove, Dawlish, Lyme, Charmouth, Bournemouth, Swanage, Seaton, and Portsmouth over the weekend.

We are off to the beach later to see if we can find some doubloons.
