Today was a beautiful summer day in Seattle. We have had very few of these days this year and so we decided to take advantage of it and head to Discovery Park.
We found little crab everywhere. The boys would turn a rock over and several crab would dig themselves deeper into the sand. Cade was even okay holding them and having them pinch him (see Birch Bay post).
I can't remember what these are called. You can stick you finger in the middle and they close up around it. There were also ones that you poke and they squirt you with water.
Maddy found this still alive clam. I think this is our first time finding a live one. The others are all eaten by the birds.
These are the only starfish we saw.
We saw 5 or 6 jellyfish. This is the only one that looked like it might still be alive. Might. We also saw clear and red ones. The red ones are pretty nasty because they look like they are full of blood. Yuck.

On our way out, Maddy spied this little pest. A raccoon. First time I have seen one not on the side of the road.
