We live pretty much right on the ocean, in case you couldn't tell by all the pictures I post. We're just a two minute walk away from the shore. The other day, at low tide, we were walking along the beach when we spotted loads of starfish in a tide pool! I have never seen such beautiful colors- brilliant red, purple, blue. The girls absolutely loved it and even gently picked one up for a couple seconds before gently placing it back in the water.
I only had my phone with me and the pictures don't do them justice but here they are:
There are tons of starfish in this last picture but they are kind of hard to see. We are really enjoying exploring here!
