To get to the place where the starfish were (according to the book) we had to cross what I referred to as "The LOG of DOOM". The book did not mention we would have to cross a raging river in the middle of the beach to get to the starfish. It also did not mention the only way to cross while staying dry involved a trek across "The LOG of DOOM". Miss Amy is seen crossing here, she was much more apt and less wobbly than me. There were pictures of me crossing this great raging river, however they were lost. Oh, and for the record, I did not fall in. I should probably repeat that, I did NOT fall in. It was worth it, because in the end we found the starfish. and some of them were purple. Who knew?
