The first time I ever saw sand dollars was at Vet's Park in Los Angeles. They were all up on edge, and I honestly thought some diver had gone through and was playing with them . . . It wasn't until we surfaced that my companions told me they put THEMSELVES up like that! It can't be easy for a flat, discoid creature to upend itself, but clearly they manage.
There are supposed to be some at the Alki Pipeline, but although I like that dive and have done it a number of times, I have never seen any.
