Summary:

Made a quick stop and saw 16 whale spouts! With binoculars. They were moving towards the horizon.

4 cars with people in them in the parking lot. No one on the beach. Noted lots of human and canine footprints. Picked up one burned beer can off the beach near a very small pile of charred driftwood.

Rest stop garbage cans were full but not overflowing.
