Jellyfish for my birthday......Chrissie

Blue Jellfish
 For my birthday I was hoping for an epic thunder storm...didn't happen but....first day back for term two the kids headed off to school at 7:40am and then came running back, the policeman who is our neighbour had just told them that school had been cancelled for the day, teachers meetings, so a happy household, I had all my lovelies home for my birthday and they didn't have to go to school everyone was happy as. We headed down to our little beach at about 11am and there were tonnes of little blue jellyfish all along the tideline on the shore and in the water, the whole time we have been here we haven't seen jellys but today there was heaps!! They were a beautiful blue, and didn't seem to sting, we here are some photo's of our fun on the 2nd of May 2016....
All along the tide line

They stuck to us when we picked them up and turned your skin blue but no sting:)
Boys having fun jumping off the boat-water deeper than it looks!!- Not worried about all the little jellyfish:
Amazing colour!

 Lots of fun...Rainy desperate to see the photos!!

Nga with her correspondence work, some words she can read and write go Nga- She wrote all of the words on the whiteboard.

May the 5th, after a morning of tantrums finally crashed out at 9:15am, what a little angel!!!
When he's asleep anyways:)

NB:Not actually Jellyfish...Porpita porpita, commonly known as the blue button, is a marine organism consisting of a colony of hydroids[2] found in tropical and sub-tropical waters of the Pacific,[3] Atlantic, and Indian oceans.[4] Although it is superficially similar to a jellyfish, each apparent individual is actually a colony of hydrozoan polyps

  1. Dear Chrissie, I'm so happy you had a special treat on your birthday with these beautiful little porpita's coming to see you. They are so pretty and no doubt created a happy time at the lagoon. i was sorry to hear from Matt that he couldn't get a boat ride home till late. :( Love you lots
