The guide told me that these were a type of anemone but I don't recall the name. They were hanging on the underside of these rocks and looked a bit like snot. I was in a kayak so I couldn't get closer. Any thoughts?

This observation is for the egg cases in this picture.

I'm not sure whether the dogwinkles in the photo are actually Northern striped dogwinkles (N. ostrina) or Frilled dogwinkles (N. lamellosa), but I think the egg cases fairly definitely belong to the N. ostrina due to their squat, vase-like shape.

Very difficult to see at the time I took the picture, this is a close-up of a purple sea urchin (Strongylocentrotus purpuratus) that was wedged beneath the rock near where I spotted the tube worms!

I don't know if it's possible to identify the kind of tube worm these are based only on the look of their casings... But my guide books suggest that a cluster of parchment-looking tubes of this size (some of them more than 12" long) could be from the Northern Feather Duster Worm (Eudistylia vancouveri)
