Those are the fossized tubes of tube worms....They are pretty common down here, and were initially buried with just the top showing. The worm makes a mucus tunnel and lives in the tube. after it dies, it gets covered with sand etc, and you have what you have millions of years later. Good find!
Save America, IMPEACH OBAMA! And continue tossing out the deadbeat Democrats that are currently in office.
