I used to live next to Seahurst Park, and have visited many times since 1994.  At low tide there are a number of large rocks on the north end that are always interesting to visit.  Today was the first time there wasn’t a single sea-star to be found.  There used to be dozens of them on the same rocks 20 years ago.

Between warmer water temperatures and the sea-star wasting disease it appears they are almost wiped out in some areas of the sound.

Yeah, sad. So much has changed, and not for the better.

Waiting for the ferries was always fun when we had time to explore the shoreline. Little more than a single generation has passed, what a despicable shame.
