These funny creatures look like jellyfish. They were spotted on the Grande Plage in Les Sables-d’Olonne this morning, Sunday 24 September.
Despite this, there were some brave souls in the water, mostly long-shore enthusiasts or surfers, and even athletes who came to participate in the World Rowing and Paddleboarding Championships.
Not even afraid of Portuguese galleys As they are also called.
