I didn't realize I had photographed the worm with the tube until I downloaded and enlarged this picture. The worm is the thin brown object on the left side of the tube. These worms live in tubes in the sand that are about the size of a soda straw, they often glue bits of shells and other small pieces of "beach junk" on the ends of the tubes.
