No complaints

Port Aransas sunrise after Tropical Storm DonTropical Storm Don broke up as it neared land Friday night. We got a little bit of gusty wind and no rain at all. We could have used some rain but all in all I’m not complaining, not one bit. I went down to the beach Saturday at dawn to see how high the high tide was and it was nowhere near up to the dunes. We did have a gorgeous sunrise.

This morning I did find a large number of “blue buttons” on the beach. Not precisely jellyfish, they’re about the size, shape and color of the caps found on plastic gallon milk and water jugs. They do have tentacles and while they don’t exactly sting, can cause an irritation to human skin, so best to leave them where they lie.

    Weird little creatures washed up in NJ recently- also not necessarily “poisonous” but certainly irritating.
