Our son and daughter-in-law accompanied us on a trip down to the lighthouse. They had not been in quite a long while and requested the excursion. We do not take much convincing to go.
We walked along the muddy shore by the lighthouse itself. The tide was way out.
Son, D, found a small sea star above the water line.
Here is the underside.
He took it back to the water after he took these pictures but was uncertain as to whether it was still alive. Sea stars are not at all common on our beaches. I hope it will live.
