Anyone been swimming at Sandy Point after the 4th? I went prior and there were no jellyfish, but wanted to see if that had changed as the weeks heat up.

Ask Tuan. No really, I was out there on Monday and there were no signs of jellyfish. The water felt pretty good especially on such a hot day.

I just swam the Severn River at the Academy this past Friday: water was warm low-mid 70s, no jellies.

Update from a swim today at Sandy Point. There are NO signs of jellyfish. None. The water wasn't even that warm, maybe 74-75 degrees or so.

Has anyone been to SP lately? The NOAA website the predicts jellyfish is busted: http://chesapeakebay.noaa.gov/remote-sensing-for-coastal-management/forecasting-sea-nettles

Thanks for the info folks. Hoping for another jellyfish-free weekend at Sandy Point. Anyone wanna join me Sunday morning? I can pick you up in DC.

Alternatively, we could check out Greenbrier lake about an hour away.
