Away Jellyfish!

Cream may ward off jel­ly­fish stings
While I doubt Hilton Head­’s econ­o­my is hurt­ing in any way, this cream may help it. Around August (I think) each year, the jel­ly­fish swarm to the extent that swim­ming is impos­si­ble with­out being stung. You go to the beach and see signs every­where: BEWARE OF JELLYFISH.

We vaca­tioned there each year when I was a teen, thanks to a com­pa­ny-owned house that was avail­able to the man­age­ment team at Dad­dy’s employ­er. The first time we were there dur­ing that time of year, we thought, “You’ve got to be kid­ding! Jel­ly­fish aren’t any­thing to wor­ry about. Some­times you get stung, but it should­n’t keep you out of the water!”

Uncle Bud­dy and Matt, I think it was, ran on into the surf—and ran right back out with­in min­utes. Each had been stung sev­er­al times by the jel­ly­fish that were every­where.
