After abundant Velella observations this spring, there's been a lull in sightings recently. Today we spotted 8-10 Velella on Salmon Creek Beach. They ranged in size from ~12-25 mm long.
The wind is predicted to be even stronger tomorrow, so perhaps a few more will wash ashore on local beaches.
P.S. Have you heard they've been catching Dorado, or Mahi-mahi (Coryphaena hippurus) off Fort Bragg? Amazing!
