happy endings


this is not an area for unbroken shells or starfish, so you can only imagine our surprise when we came across this amazing, still very much alive{and perhaps trying on his very own to get back to the water based on the imprints in the sand}creature. as we got closer, its little feelers were moving, so we threw him back in the ocean and watched, although i'm not exactly sure what starfish do in the water. i mean when you throw a fish fish back, it swims away, but a starfish…i don't know…do they crawl? well, eventually we lost track of him as the waves pushed and pulled against the shore and so my thoughts are that he made it back home just in time to have dinner with his family. 

what can i say…i like happy endings.

  8. I don't know what they do either, but that one is particularly beautiful and I'm glad he posed for you before his return to the water. You are indeed a good Samaritain.
