|A bowl full of "String of Pearls"|
|Surface of the sea filled with these creatures. (Picture a bit blurry - Sorry)|
|An interesting little fish we caught at the same time|
|There we also a lot of these eyeball-like jellyfish. We have not found any|
information about these yet.
The night was flat calm until about 4:30am when the rocking began, waves but no wind. Steve and I realized we would not sleep so why not start heading north again, a 5 hour run, to Los Gatos. The water was still filled with these "string of pearls" creatures so we knew we would not be swimming or snorkeling here. We decided to pull anchor and depart in the dark. As we got out in the channel to head north we saw a sailing vessel also heading north. They were slightly ahead of us but traveling a bit slower. We remained in sight of them for the rest of the transit, although they slipped further and further behind us with every hour. More on that sailboat in the next blog entry……………

It's hard to see, but it is just in front of their boat.
