Cushion Starfish

Please enjoy these beautiful starfish.  Take a picture or move the star fish into deeper water but do not attempt to keep.  Cusion starish will rot and you will only have a brown mess versus a beautiful starfish.  Winding Bay has extensive cushion star fish colony that we want to preserve.  At time, you can see upwards to 50 starfish in various colors.
