Purple Starfish survives off Beach Drive!

Given all the depressing news about sea-star populations wasting away in Puget Sound (as well as along many other west coast shorelines), I thought I would check for myself during this afternoon’s low tide. I snapped this pic at a large rock formation located at the edge of the 2.5 tide…


I didn’t have time to count all the toes but I can report that all the arms of these stars looked perfectly healthy!
