A pair of them.  Family?  Couple?  Friends?  So cool to see starfish in the tide pools, and don’t you love their almost jewel-like decorations?

I have an even better photo of a different, single one, but given today’s events, I want to celebrate two creatures nestling together, no “us” and “them,” just [apparently] friendly proximity.  There’s plenty of rock to snug up against, plenty of seawater, and probably plenty of whatever starfish eat.  I had a strange desire to tickle them but decided against it.  I don’t know what starfish do when disturbed. Don’t need to find out!

  1. Tide pools always remind me of my mom, who loved them, and who was raised in Omaha, Nebraska. I’ve never loved the beach although I love the ocean and the tides and the breakers, usually from afar, like from up on a cliff. I am enjoying your blog. It’s giving me a different perspective. And that’s good!
