Skeleton Shrimp

Asked my Marine Biologist friend if he knew what this creature was and he said he did not but if I emailed him my photo he would ask some Invertebrate Biologists.
Key word "invertebate" brought up Amphipod and led to Caprellidae:

I's Back

Black Ball Ferry deigned to let us come home this morning. We may consider "Reserving" a spot on the ferry next trip.
Though the RV was comfy it's always a treat to get home to the cold house, light the furnace and have your familiar BATHROOM!
Loved every minute!
