Little Stars

While on the west coast Rick & I went looking along the rocky shore line at low tide to see star fish or sea stars. The rangers told us we might not find many as they have been affected by the "wasting disease" very sad to hear. This problem appeared in 1983-4 and the star fish came back from it's affects. This time it seems it is a lot worse, scientist have determined it is a virus. We have not read or heard what can be done to stop it as of yet. The star fish are disappearing all the way up into Alaska. I never thought about star fish being that far north.

We did find a few and hope that they will return to us. Too much has already been lost.
