Sea Cucumber

+ so I was trying to get a shot at that speckled fish up there, and saw this……thing…..waving out from a rock near shore.  It didn’t have suckers, so I’m not sure it was an octopus (update: a local friend tells me it is a sewage worm; they live in shallow, still water and feed by filtering through their bodies) . But at 2 inch diameter and 3 feet long (the part I could see!)….I wasn’t going to get much closer!

UPDATE: now 2017, and seeing this just a few feet from where I saw ^that^…..and having TomK of Punaweb help with the id, I think I can now id ^that^ as a sea cucumber also!
