Junior sailor

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!
