Vortex Surfing Puffers -More Roll than Rock

Two Marine puffers are surprised by a vortex current and get the ride
of their lives. I'd imagine they'll be resting on a nice solid rock
shelf for a few hours after this little adventure.

Poor puffs. Looks like a non-consensual amusement park ride.

Marine Puffs are tough. They'll get swallowed whole by a larger fish like a sea bass or tarpon, get mouthed,
violently spat out, then simply shake it off and swim away.

I'm betting this pair survived with nothing more than splitting cases of vertigo.

They probably share stories of the party at the "Woodstock current". That trippin' vortex that made
them see weird lights and bright colors when they tried to eat those freakin' cool looking ( but
dangerous ) "silver bubbles of swirling sunshine".

"Awesome story, grandpa puff. Tell it again."

"Some other time, Puffykins."

"I need to go drive off that pesky young suitor who has
his iridescent green eyes focused square on your grandma."
