I was fascinated. I've seen jellyfish before, so I'm not really sure why. Maybe because it's in my "backyard"...it was so cool to watch for a few minutes. Its tentacles were out because it was feeding. When they are full, they retract so it just looks like a round jellyfish. I know this because my friend Roxy has one as a pet.
And then, when we were walking back from the car later that day, I spotted this little guy!
I've never seen a starfish in the wild before, so I was like a little kid. There were about 12 of them along the walls.
I had to stop taking pictures of them though because it was a little excessive. But this morning when I was walking back to the car for work, there were even more! A couple looked like babies. I was late so I didn't stop to take more pictures. I'm really hoping that we put our trap in the water soon so we can catch a few crabs and lobsters. Our neighbor does that all of the time and eats really well!
Next, I really hope we get to see a seal. They say that every now and then one or two wander into the marina. I might poop my pants with excitement if that ever happens.
