Are people allowed to have fires on the beach? Just curious? They are on both the WA coast and Oregon coast. I don't pick things up here. A live starfish should never be touched. If a starfish is dead do you want it too staying on the beach. Again not the case with sand dollars. People get those sometimes too on the Ocean Beaches. Now I am not complaining I am simply asking questions for clarity. I have no intention of using our beaches here as a scavenger pit...but the ocean it is my understanding and it's beaches do not belong to any town or city. If they did the only beach walkers would be the property owner living along the beach. I think there is a spot like that right down there. Why? Ok...no criticism, just want clarification. I too respect wildlife and I would not and never have taken anything from Edmonds Beaches. Ya can't play the games if you don't know the rules. Thank You.
