Ochre Star With Wasting Disease
There is a diffuse white path and what looks like a white scar on the top of the star. This is infection that may kill this star. This star being in the sand rather than hiding under a rock doesn't bode well either.
Species: Pisaster ochraceus (Ochre Star)

Baby Mottled Stars
These two were on the underside of a piece of kelp. This was going to be a long low tide so we put them back on the kelp and put them in the ocean.
Species: Evasterias troschelii (mottled star)

Sponge Covering Rock
I was really happy I touched this animal - at first I thought it a coralline algae but once I felt it was soft, I realized it was something very different. From a taxonomy point a view, this is an animal, but it's its' own branch like Chordata (things with spinal cords like mammals and birds) and arthropods (insects).
Species: Haliclona permollis (Purple Encrusting Sponge)

Thatched Barnacle
The algae growing on the side (Sea cauliflower) was totally winning here - it dominated the rock surfaces.
Species: Semibalanus cariosus (thatched barnacle), Leathesia difformis (Sea cauliflower)
