First in Flight

I dreamed that I could fly, like it was super power that I had recently acquired; all I had to do was stand in the window sill high up in a house and look up at the night sky and the stars and think “fly!” and lift up my arms and I would fly. I had been given some sort of task by someone but I can’t remember what it was. Instead of doing whatever I was supposed to be doing, I flew to an ocean beach where there were many sea creatures: crabs, jellyfish, starfish and so on. My cat was there with me at the beach for some reason and together we were looking in crab holes at bright orange and white crabs. You could see all the way into their holes like they were living rooms with the drapes left open. In some of the larger crab holes, there were mirrors behind the crabs creating an infinity effect, and lights as if they had a lamp inside. There was a box on the beach with water in it and I picked it up and dumped the water back into the ocean, but discovered that there had been a jellyfish inside. I jumped away from the jellyfish and tried to push it back into the water with the box. Then I noticed that I had a painful welt on my right thigh which I assumed was a jellyfish sting, but it looked more like someone had punched me really hard in the leg. 

This dream pairs well with the following meal:
I'm thinking seafood. Maybe shrimp scampi? Or grilled shrimp with herb butter? Or coconut shrimp? Let's go with coconut shrimp. I've never actually made that from scratch so my advice is to go to a restaurant that has them on the menu. It's good to treat yourself sometimes and also coconut shrimp are better if they're deep fried, and sometimes deep frying is daunting at home.
