Countless jellyfish wash up on a beach in San Francisco, USA

A countless amount of jellyfish washed ashore at Pacifica State Beach in San Francisco over the weekend, worrying some locals who were enjoying the long Memorial Day weekend on the sand.
 
“It freaks you out at first. I mean, your hands are hitting them when you’re paddling in the water. And you think, ‘oh man this is going to sting,’ but then you realize they don’t,” said one surfer Josh Badura.
 
The small, translucent, gelatinous blobs are harmless Moon Jellyfish that wash up to the beach with the current, according to Malilou Seiff of the Marine Science Institute.
 
“Jellyfish are not swimmers. They float with the current. So when you get onshore currents, and onshore winds, they just float ashore,” Seiff explained.
