Kayaked from Storm Ranch to old breach near end of Mile 90 and walked to S. end of Mile 89. New River breach closed. Bull Kelp knots, shells, woodpieces, plastic pellets, Land- and ocean-based debris and Styrofoam in driftline. Fox and raccoon tracks on beach. Merlin and Sanderlings observed. Significant sand deposition and large woody debris appear in this area. Looks like wonderful plover habitat. Foredune eroded steeper and deeper - not ramp-like like last year. No evidence of overtopping except in areas of previous river breaches. No human activity except track of ATV from biologist survey team.
