One brave kid

Now here is something you wouldn’t catch me doing… this kid was holding onto what I thought to be a Portuguese man-o-war. Now, I’m no ocean-life expert, but I’ve always assumed this action to lead to certain discomfort. If someone is more knowledgeable about what this kid is holding, please comment. I’m curious to know what I’ve been avoiding on my early morning walks down the beach.

    Dave, I think what he has here is a “By-the-wind sailor”. He definitely wouldn’t/couldn’t hold a “Man O’ War”!

    Here’s a link to ‘By-the-wind sailors’:
