Ouch - That really hurts
We were last at CN in March 2011. As usual every day was spent in the sea, however on that trip many people including myself were getting jellyfish / hydroid stings. Some people had little / no issues whilst some of us had a nasty reation. They formed straight lines of raised red blisters that really hurt and took a couple of weeks to fade. We were diving, however swimmers were also getting stung.
We are back at CN in just over 2 weeks and wondered if they are a problem at the moment. I will be prepared - diving with hood, gloves, full lycra, but was hoping to swim in my shorts between dives. I'm always happy to "play the fool", however wearing my diving hood as I paddle in the sea will not only look silly but will be far too hot.
