This is only the second time I've found what may be Suberites montiniger (Peach Ball Sponge). It was the size of a tennis ball, wrapped onto a rock, and visible during the -3.1 tide.

A pair of River Otters with Saccharina latissima, wtaching me during the minus tide. They acted like they'd never seen a human before!

Something new for me, maybe a Compound Tunicate? They were about 1/2 to 1" long, firm to the touch, and visible during the -3.1 tide.

This very thin (like a toothpick) and very long (24"?) worm was coiled up on top of the sand during the -3.1 tide. I wonder if it could it be a Scoletoma zonata (Iridescent Zoneworm)? That's the only one that seems to match in Andy Lamb's book. I placed it in a pool of water to photograph with my macro lens, and was surprised by the iridescence.
