Summary:

Extremely windy. Nobody in parking lot or on beach. Probably the cleanest I've seen it but I think it's due to the sand covering everything up. Big driftwood washing up. Very few birds. Some rocks on shoreline but way less than in the past. Usually find lots of bottles. The wind was way to harsh. Even Nelson was begging to go home.

Very windy again. Large amount of agates. Not much garbage on the beach maybe due to the winds. Looks like last week the tide went over the tops. Spent about two hours there. No Nelson again until...

This was my wife's and my first CoastWatch visit to our adopted mile. We had an excellent walk, enjoyed the opportunity and plan on doing it more often than the minimum requirement. The beach was...
