    I really like the ocean. Boom, nothing else additional to mention about this. I like spending my time there, I like the sound that absorbes everything else. I like to see what other people are doing on the beach. And I like to just close my eyes and see what is happening around me.


    Reaching the Indian ocean was like a first breeze of getting out of the damp air with sandstorms and some time even temperatures above 40 degrees Celsius. The ocean was screaming for a dip in there.

    But in the evening when the sun was setting and the tide was pulling back I started seeing these little critters on the beach.




    It looked like a tiny jellyfish which was washed up ashore and had no options on going back. I dont know about you but I am not the biggest fan of jellyfish at all. Usually while swimming in the ocean at some point you will feel a little sting and it turns out there was some small jellyfish hoovering around you. Thanks but no thanks so I stayed away from them.

    And on a beach this empty... It wasnt really a problem at all.





    We don't see beaches that empty that often. Usually there is always something to do, or a family hanging out there with the kids, or some entrepreneur who made a beach club out of it. But not here. Morgans Bay South Africa was nearly entirely empty and I loved it!





    The creatures in the water

    In the distance we had seen humpback whales passing by. With the biggest splashes they would come out of the water almost with their full bodies to again splash back in.

    With the weight from 15 to 60 elephants that is no joke at all. Those splashes are serious and you can see them from far away.

    But now the focus was on these small creatures in the sand. And all of a sudden the jellyfish started to move as you can see on the video!



    But huh! Werent this just jellyfish who were washed up ashore and had not where to go anymore?

    This turned out to be small little crab like animals who just took up their little shell house and departed. Every time when a wave would come up and make the sand softer, they would travel and dig themselves into the sand so they would be a bit more protected for when there is no wave coming in.




    I observed the whole spectacle for a while and was very wondered about the whole thing. Even more interesting was that in the morning there was nothing of this to be seen.

    So this really is a tide thing and how creatures adapt to what is going on at that moment.

    And water creatures...damn they are smart!





    I continued my walk over the beach looking into the other direction. The peace returned after the whole jellyfish-crab (what should we call them??) show had finished.

    Maybe the Indian ocean deserves a dip to dive in after all?
