Summary:

Our beach walk with Fawn Custer, October, 1, 2018.  We met at the Gold Beach Visitor Center, then 

walked south toward Turtle Rock and Kissing Rock.  Sunny day. Tide was low.  Fawn identified small

jelly fish, and a foot from a mollusk. Fawn talked about photographing this area during the King Tide.

We did!  On December 21-23, 2018. Always informative, Fawn makes beach walks fun.
