Burying Papa and Moon Jellies

One thing that Hannah was determined to do when we got to the beach was to bury Papa in the sand!

On the 2nd day we were there, jelly fish began to wash up on shore. Lots of them!
We found out that they were moon jellies and that for the most part they do not sting. We could even touch them and they wouldn't sting. I don't think Sophia was buying that.

There was this one kind though that did wash up that would give quite a jolt. It wasn't supposed to be jelly fish season but guess the jelly fish didn't know that.

Luckily, no one did get stung. Hannah took it upon herself to be the jelly fish scooper-upper.

They were taken to the jelly fish graveyard.

There were other critters around too.

Don't think Sophia liked it much.

Allen's a fun papa to let the kids bury him! I'm sure they had fun doing that!
