To conclude the weekend we ran into this guy on the beach.....
A Pacific Mole Crab!  
Known more commonly as sand crabs, this species lives all along the Pacific Coast and are masters at doing everything backwards.  Their eyestalks as well as two sets of antennae reach above the sand when buried for both breathing and feeding.
