Starfish – A Photograph

20130430-090402.jpg

Sunday was a -2.4 tide at Carkeek Park in Seattle, so my family took the opportunity to go tide pooling, which is where we found this beauty.

The boys had a great time, and the little one was so delighted with the things we uncovered (more starfish, eels, rock, dungeness, and arrow crabs, etc.) that he started to turn over almost every rock on the beach!

The beaches above the normal tide line don’t seem to have as much life on them than when I was a kid, but it was heartening to see a fair amount of diversity below it, even if there were fewer vertebrates than I would have expected.
