This week I went out for the first time of the season on to the water. Not many fish…though I did catch one. Dinner was truly scrumptious I can tell you. Simple but delish…panfried snapper in butter with a little Himalayan salt and pepper and lemon juice.
It was exactly what I needed after what has been a difficult few months.
Looking down in to the water I saw, for the time in New Zealand, a bunch of these guys. While I have since heard from friends of them stinging both people and horses they were incredibly beautiful to watch.
I haven’t worked out what type they are yet. We get the Lion’s Mane Jellyfish and the Spotted Jellyfish here. I think they may be these two types, but if anyone out there is a Jellyfish expert…wade in and tell me what they are. PLEASE !!!!
As an aside…recently off the Australian coast what was thought to be an extinct jellyfish has been found. Not too sure how I feel about this. As growing up in Australia I was all to aware of the deadly Box Jellyfish.
It seems this guy is even more deadly. The Crambione Cookii Monster was last seen back in 1910.
Now as for my two blogs.
- Oil Free Seas Flotilla – We are doing battle with our government at the moment over them not only allowing but encouraging deep sea oil drilling. The government recently made it illegal to get within 500 metres of any drilling ship. New Zealand has a proud history of protest at sea and this law is just a farce. Anardarko is currently exploring off the New Zealand coastline and law or no law…the little Kiwi battler is not going to be silenced. This blog is a day to day account of David taking on Goliath.
- Health Extremist – As you all know being healthy is a number 1 priority for me and this blog has some great info on all types of issues as well as great ideas.
Now…that is it for me. I am off to paint some tyres for my potato towers.
Might I suggest you hop on the bunny below and go visit Marianne and check out not only her post but many others.
