This new category will definitely be making an appearance a time or two ~ as I am learning that Vashon is truly a special place.
The interesting thing is, while all the starfish below look a bit different ~ they’re all the same species!
These mussel bed dwellers are called Ochre Sea Star’s, also known as the Purple Sea Star (of the Pacific Ocean). The can also be orange, yellow, red…
They have many more limbs or ‘rays’ than the average star, usually 16-24.
- Moving @ 1 metre per minute & using their 15,000 tube feet, they’re on the move!
- This star’s color ranges from orange, to yellow, to red~ even purple…
Sometimes it’s the simplest of things in life that are the best. We’re so used to rushing around…going, going, going. Taking time to slow way down is not only nourishing for the MBS, but it kinda slows time down. Have you ever noticed yourself saying, “where did the day go?”
Maybe your summer is about having fun, or getting fit ~ but maybe we can set an intention to ‘slow down’ ~ to take it all in. Take a bath, go for a walk, or sit and read in a park.
What is your intention this summer?
