Summary:
Started my coast watch walk at 10:00 AM. Parking lot was empty. No one was one the beach. Not one dead bird and no erosion to report. Beach access was clear. After my walk there was a retired gentleman who had been camping at the campground for the last month who told me that some strong young men had cleared the roadway onto the beach of driftwood yesterday.

Wanted to document the driftwood pile-up that's been in place for the past few weeks at Cape Blanco beach. The good news: it blocks auto/ATV ingress on the access road. The bad news: it is a bit hard...
  • Logjam blocking the access road, near a particularly high tide (over 8 ft).

A beautiful day for my first mile summary; a Christmas present, indeed. The beach was, as usual, sparsely populated around sunset/low tide. Not much wildlife to be seen, other than the usual tidepool...
  • 5-ft buoy washed ashore
  • Needle rock is usually in the tideline and can't access the west side.

Nice day for a walk. Very little wildlife except for some Canadian geese. I was alone but on my return walk two cars driving on the beach passed by. This is legal on this beach and not a concern.
