This was an old piling along the shore of the Duwamish, I think that shipworms (saltwater clams in the family Teredinidae) bored these holes, it was an intereting pattern to see.

I saw these calcareous tube worm tubes along an old concrete piling that was sitting along then banks of the Duwamish Waterway. The density of tubes increased along the concrete, the whole piling was about 6 meters ( 20 feet) long. I think these tubes are from worms in the genus Serpula
