Summary:

A beautiful day on Mile 235. Sunny, warm, very light to no wind on the beach. Lots of people out walking, running and enjoying the day. The beach was very clean with only a few individual pieces of driftwood here and there, no rocks or shells, no animal casings, and only two pieces of debris that I came upon, etc. The most plentiful objects on the beach this day were footprints.
