Summary:

While there was plenty of activity by visiting tourists sightseeing at the viewpoints, there was little else to report. One house in the neighborhood is being remodeled/rennovated, which may or may not have an impact on the birds utilizing the nearby seastacks. No new errosion of any cliffside was noticed. All cars were using pull-outs. Didn't see much bird activity and no marine mammal activity on the rocks below, even though it was low tide.
