Starfish, Anemones, Caves, the Beach and the Sea ASL Signs

We spent the evening watching the sunset along the beach. The tide was at its lowest, so we were able to walk out to the rocks where the sea anemones and starfish live. These are tide pool creatures. There were a few little hermit crabs as well, but they scuttled too quickly between the crevices for me to catch a photo of them. I used my 3g IPhone with each of these photos. Our son had a lovely time running free on the beach and chasing the waves as they came in. Below the post, you will find links to illustrations and videos how to sign "cave" "sea" "anemone" "starfish" and "beach".

Here is the sign for "beach" demonstrated by asllessons Hawaii
