This weekend we found 4 of these strange beautiful creatures washed ashore. We collected them and asked the park ranger as well as the lifeguard if
they knew what they were. Neither of them had a clue. They look like a member of the jellyfish or snail family but have no shell. What's really odd
about them is their completely clear almost rubbery like dorsal fin. A fleshy bright blue membrane hangs from the underside like a clam.
The bravest of us, a 4 yr old girl actually picked it up and bit the clear hard plastic fin on the top. Ick! She volunteered to carry them back to
the ranger station. Has anyone ever seen something like this before. I've been coming to San Diego beaches for over 30 years and have never seen
anything like this.
