Low Tide And A Giant Starfish

Dad picked me up from doggie daycare just after lunch and while we waited for Mom to finish work we came home and I had my customary afternoon nap. Then when it stopped raining Dad took me on a walk to the waterfront.

It was extra fun because I got to do lots of beach combing! There are a lot of things to smell and dig for under the pier when the water disappears.

A few crazy seagulls were really noisy and circled above us. They didn’t like us there so we had to be careful not to get pooped on!

Can you see the seagulls? They are difficult to spot in the photo above and below but they are there. BOL!

Look at all those barnacles!

Doing my beach combing round. There is almost always pawsome stuff to find and sometimes something to roll on too!

Dipping my paws in the ocean. I had to walk quite a ways out to do so. The tide was extra low today.

Further on I spotted something funny-looking in the water and I had to show Dad… and it was a giant starfish! Dad said it was probably as big as Deunan!

Isn’t it huge? You have to keep in mind that we are standing about eight or more feet away in the photo above. Dad used his zoom to get the photo below.

What a giant!

After lots of running and digging and sniffing, I was ready to go home… but not before playing hide-and-seek with Dad!

Can you find me? Dad did. He said my nose gave me away!

    1. And it was HUGE! Wish you could have seen it, Jman! There’s always lots of small purple ones where I live but I’ve never seen one this size before.
