It smelled like dead fish outside

When we left our apartment to go get lunch it smelled like dead fish. It was trash day so the first thought was maybe just an open trash can. Walked out and didn't see any open. Then started walking down the block and the smell didn't get any better. When we hit the cross street and the sea breeze hit us fully it got even worse. In our hood that usually means there's something dead on the beach so we went down to see what was up. And it was a mass stranding of "By the Wind Sailor" jellyfish! Well they aren't really jellyfish and have some scientific name I think you can find on this blog somewhere. They are one of our favorite things that washes up on our beach.
Just look at them all! Lucky for Linda she wore a matching outfit -:]

This one is disolving Linda's face away -:\

So many dead By the Wind Sailors. There were miles of them and they smelled like dead fish. We were walking by the water most of they way and the wind was on shore (hence the mass stranding) and it didn't smell at all.

It seems the wind also washed up a giant tub covered in sea things. Maybe they are clams or mussels of some kind?

The tub was pretty big, probably 5'x8' and 2-3' deep. Probably a fish tub that fell off a fishing boat. Was thinking of dragging it home and cleaning it off and using it for something but decided that would be way to much work.

I really liked the way the side looked all blue and covered in sea stuff.
And it's me so here's some in 3D!

I really like the side in 3D.

And a close up of the sea stuff on the tub.
