orange and purple starfish on Washington coast beach meet my black silver Sea Star ring

One of my favorite things about Shi Shi Beach were the crazy sea creatures that came out when the tide was low.

I was so delighted to see the orange and purple starfish I had to introduce my Sea Star ringto every single one of them! (and there were a lot!)

If you want to read more about my trip to Shi Shi, here’s an introduction to the landscape.

The texture on these creatures was phenomenal. Ever since hand carving a sea anemone shell back in college, I’ve been obsessed with this kind of texture found on many sea animals frequently seen in tide pools.

Did I mention the colors?! I’ve never seen such vibrantly colored starfish. And the contrast with the green seaweed and anemones was pretty striking.

I wasn’t joking when I said my ring had to greet to every single starfish. They all really enjoyed bonding.

I loved this little grouping of starfish who posed in formation. I wonder what their marching band would sound like…

Everyone likes to snuggle, even starfish!

The piles and piles of starfish at Point of Arches on Shi Shi Beach were a definite highlight. But wait until you see what other weirdness and fantastic textures were in abundance there. More soon…

Want to bond with starfish too (even if only in theory)?
