Calm as Glass!.....Newport bound

Set off from St Georges,
Really enjoyed our brief time in
Something new: can hardly wait to get to an internet connection when we reach Newport >>> for the last 24 hours we have been cruising amongst thousands of the strangest sea creatures: they vary from little ones that are a couple of inches in length to the largest that are about 9 or 10 inches in length. They appear in the distance as bubbles (like bubbles you would blow …just floating on the water surface) but when you get up close you see that the “looks like a bubble” above the surface part is actually a “sail” with a vertical radiating membrane that gives it a semi-circular shape above the water….with a large slug like body submerged beneath. Never before have we seen anything like this. There is colour in the radiating elements that give shape to the “sail” and there is colour in the body of the “monster” that sits submerged. We see these “fish” (maybe a form of jellyfish) turn themselves to get lower or higher speed from the wind according to how they present the sail profile to the wind. STRANGE!!....and quite an interesting marvel. We await access to Google or some source to see what it is???
If all goes well, it looks like we will be
