Exploring Eagle Island

a1

Eagle Island is the little island right across from our Alaskan cabin.

You only have a few hours a day when you can walk to it, and that is when the tide is low.

Every summer I never fail to explore the island and be amazed at all the colorful creatures you find.

I hope you enjoy this little adventure as much as I did

Whenever you find one, you find a ton

One of the main things you find on Eagle Island are thousands of starfish, waiting for the tide to roll back in.

This is a fat, fuzzy starfish. Not sure of its scientific name

Sunfish. Similar to a starfish, but as you can see they have a lot more limbs
