I could not get close enough to get a proper identification, but they were gathered in the pilings by the ferry dock.
this is just the shell, but they are scattered all over the beach. This one also had a hole drilled through it. Evidence of a moon snail?
sorry about the reflection off the water in this picture
this one has a starfish in it's mouth
these tiny ones scatter the beaches
I believe this to be a kind of kelp, but I have never seen it before. It's caught on a piece of drift wood and those are sacks of air hanging down from the stem.
growing underneath pine trees. This one I am unsure about because the cap is a very light color but it has an orange tint to it, and there have been observations of white ones before.
striding away as I got closer
this one is dead, but it is good evidence of live ones.
flower in bloom.

They were domesticated, but they are almost more common than dogs there.
I believe it is a kind of moss, but maybe it's too big to be a moss. This one really baffles me.

I apologize for the terrible picture, but you can see the shape of the flower and the leaves.
