Happy Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day! Here in the United States today is a holiday and many have the day off. If you are one of those lucky ones I hope you are enjoying your long weekend!

Yesterday we spent some time at the beach. It was really overcast and we had a few sprinkles but not enough to scare us away. While playing around in the water Kailani said, "Mom....I stepped on something and it was gushy." A few minutes later I noticed something floating by. I scooped it up with Momo's net and this is what it was:

Mysterious Creature

What exactly is it? I don't know! Some kids thought it was an octopus or a squid but I'm thinking more along the lines of an anemone or jellyfish (or a scary hybrid!) One of the kids (not mine!) picked it up and said he started to itch. I apologize for the terrible picture - unfortunately you can't see the iridescent "tentacles" and two of it's "legs" are tucked under. I think the little guy is on it's back in this picture.... Do YOU know what it is? I would love to know! :)

Besides finding the creepy creature we had a nice time. Hope you are enjoying your weekend as well!

  3. I'm thinking starfish on steroids. Or on toxic waste...
