San Diego California has one of the most interesting harbor habitats in America. San Diego’s Broadway Pier, G Street Pier, and Embarcadero Park area welcome thousands of tourists from cruise ships, vacation yachts, and hotels each year. Our harbor activities range from on shore  leisure walking, reading, and enjoying picnics, to attending small busker concerts or huge bay side party bash concerts with mega name superstars. Recently, we had an unusual visitor . . .Australian jellyfish. Turns out that these jellyfish have been here for a while in our lower harbor area.

I covered the event a few weeks ago for the Notesong Blog and began thinking about how this phenomenon is impacting our understanding of shifting ecosystems. We may not fully understand what is happening in our oceans and waterways for at least a few more years. See

However, I managed to get a video and more photos to post on Sonictapestry for my science community readers who might want to chime in about other natural phenomena. Enjoy.

As our climate continues to undergo unusual changes that seem to not have been documented by scientists as normal cyclical occurrences, we will probably experience   more of nature’s “surprises.”

It was an interesting summer.

  1. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours lately, yet I never found any fascinating article
    like yours. It’s pretty value sufficient for me.

    In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made excellent content as you probably did, the web will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
