Eww, what's that smell?
It's kind of sad, really, a poor little creature, velella, also known as "by-the-wind sailor"
that spends its life cruising the wavetops, is unceremoniously stranded all along the west coast beaches, due to a shift in the spring winds. It happens in my town, Dillon Beach, every couple of years but they're really thick this year.
