More Sea Squirts

What can I say?   I love these things.

These are some new friends I recently met at Point Dume near Malibu.  During very low tides, such as we had at the end of December, you can just wander around among the tide pools and find things that you’d normally only see snorkeling.

tunicates (Pyura haustor?). Most of the tough reddish body buried in sand, and the pharynx, which does the actual squirting, sticking out.
