Here's another Urticina coriacea (Stubby Rose Anemone), the most common anemone at Salt Creek (after Pink-tipped Green Anemones). They are about 3" across, and covered in bits of broken shell, broken sea urchin spine, etc.

Description from Wikipedia

Sea anemones are a group of water-dwelling, predatory animals of the order Actiniaria. They are named for the anemone, a terrestrial flower. Sea anemones are classified in the phylum Cnidaria, class Anthozoa, subclass Hexacorallia. Anthozoa often have large polyps that allow for digestion of larger prey and also lack a medusa stage. As cnidarians, sea anemones are related to corals, jellyfish, tube-dwelling anemones, and Hydra.
