The other thing that was a little weird was that it was jellyfish breeding season, and the ocean was filled with baby jellyfish. I mean filled. I was the only one brave enough to get in the water and snorkel, and I felt like I had been shrunk and made to swim in a bowl of Jellyfish-O's. They were barely as big as the circle I make with my forefinger and thumb, and as I swam I brushed against hundreds, each one giving a funny gentle jolt of numbness on my arms, forehead, lips, everywhere. That experience stuck with me.
