Scene in Edmonds: Sea creatures at low tide

The -4 low tide in Edmonds on Thursday, July 14 exposed lots of marine life and brought many residents to the waterfront to search through the tide pools, seaweed and eel grass in search of sea creatures.

  1. Beautiful photos thank you for being out there and sharing with all of us who can’t be there.

  2. Thank you for the great low tide photos.!

    A gentle reminder to beachcombers: 1) Always get your hands wet with sea water before you touch any marine animals, 2) Always put the animals back where you found them (under a dock, under seaweed, etc.). Don’t leave them exposed to the sun, wind and predators. 3) Don’t put sea creatures in a bucket for a long time (they are not used to warm water). 4) Please don’t take crabs, sea stars, etc. home. They will die.

    Enjoy our extraordinary waterfront!

  3. Susan Morrow,
    Thank you for saying that.
    Such great words, people please leave the sea creatures where they are.
