A typical day of Maine beachcombing in late May: three rock crab shells (Cancer irroratus, sometimes called peekytoe crab, mostly by seafood marketers), a green crab shell (Carcinus maenas), blue mussels, sea urchins, bits of nylon rope, birch bark, sea glass, periwinkle shells, a sprig of rockweed, and a piece of rusty metal. The most interesting finds of the day were the clusters of whelk egg cases. I think these are the eggs of the Common Northern Whelk (Buccinum undatum). Don't worry, the eggs hatched before I found them. The stuff the cases are made of is surprisingly strong. It looks like translucent seaweed, and now that it's dry it sounds papery, but it's as tough as tyvek, and feels similar when you try to tear it.
