    1. Thank you for your kind words Miriam πŸ’œ This is what normally happens and on this morming the big waves had left some starfish on the beach. I carried one back to the water and when another dog walker saw what I was doing she too picked one up and carried it back to the water. They were the only starfish we saw and hopefully they will be OK β˜ΊπŸ’– xxx
