Yesterday I walked from work to the foot ferry.  I was just hanging out waiting for the ferry to show up.  Looking at the pilings, I noticed it was low tide.  I was looking out over Sinclair Inlet when I overheard a conversation behind me.

"What is that pink thing on the piling?  An octopus?"

"That thing with five legs?  It's a starfish"

"That pink thing - right there....."

"It's a starfish!"

A person can frequently see starfish attached to the pilings at low tide.  Being able to count appendages and know marine species - that's another story.
