Previous Stars On Rock
34 of 54 from Winter Harbour To Brooks Peninsula

Pisaster ochraceus (Ochre Star), Mediaster aequalis (Vermilion Star)

The vermilion star really caught my eye but the Ochre stars (both common morphs) are pretty nice. The seaweed is Sea lettuce. It could be one of 8 species (Genius Ulva) so I can't call it.
