    The dog-friendly seaside park in Ocean Beach welcomed more than two- and four-legged friends over the weekend.

    An octopus was spotted in shallow waters along the beach Sunday. A dog owner captured video of the cephalopod feet from the water’s edge.

    A San Diego Fire-Rescue lifeguard said octopi sightings are common at San Diego beaches but typically they gather in tide pools. It’s a rare sight to see octopi along the shore.
