Here are some more choice references:
>> As a child, I used to love standing on the jellyfish washed up onto the beach and feeling them squelch through my toes. You know the jellyfish- those clear, crescent shaped wobbly jelly shapes.
>> They are the egg sacs of predatory sand snails, either the conical sand snail (Polinices conicus) or the moon snail (Polinices sordidus), both of which are common to this area. Each sac contains thousands of eggs, which are visible if you look closely. They begin washing up on beaches from November and can be found as late as March. The snails are only a quarter of the size of their egg sacs, which are produced under incredible pressure inside the snail's shell and then expelled in a single, explosive laying.
