Portuguese Man O' War

We saw several Portuguese Man o' War, commonly referred to as 'blue-bottles' in Australia and New Zealand, during our recent trip to the Florida Keys.  
I wanted to spend more time investigating these interesting creatures, but we had 'miles to go' before we reached our next campsite, and the wind and current kept blowing them out of range or under my kayak.  Although we had a few hand injuries, none of them were due to an encounter with one of these fellows.

Key West Florida

"The Sea is the same as it has been since before men ever went on it in boats."  ~  Ernest Hemingway


A fitting quote for sails and kayaks alike as the evening storm rolled into Key West near Zachary Taylor Park.
