Summary:

We did not make the full 3 miles due to trash pick up. Our bag was full. Styrofoam was a great portion of it. Crab buoys, shot gun wads, styrofoam cup pieces . We also found a crab cage connected to a log. It was buried in the sand too far to remove. Lots of wood from large surf. Shoreline was steep. It looked like a great undertow was probably present.

There was some erosion of the sand wall since we were there last but only about a foot. There was very little litter on the beach this time. Nice to see. Most of the activity was near the river mouth.
