Summary:

We arrived around noon, but the rain was intense so we waited about an hour. By then the rain had stopped and the clouds gave way to sunshine. Due to recent storms, there was a lot of trash along our mile. Plastic pieces, fishing rope, broken toolbox, large amounts of plastic bottles. We did a through cleanup, hauling away several trash bags. Finished right as the rain started again. Many large and small logs had been deposited along the shoreline.

This is a recreated report!  The first one was sent by mail but never arrived.  This is my best estimate of what we saw...

A perfect day on the coast with a light breeze and sunshine. Lots of folks walking the beach, some with their dogs. A few ladies sunbathing and 2 on horseback. The beach was very, very clean.

The uploaded pictures are from mile 284. We didn't get to our mile, 285. Wood apparently from a temple site has been found in Oceanside. We suspect that the timbers mentioned in this report are from...
  • One of many timbers 2 to 3 meters long, 10 cm on a side, most with complex holes and end mortices, etc.
  • A portion of one beam (approx 2m long, 10 x 10cm on sides, showing elaborate shaping.
