Report Details

A beautiful sunny day brought out beach walkers. It was a perfect day for tidepooling. Scuppers, turban shells, pink anemones, and sea snails were easy to spot. The beach seems fairly clean without a lot of human made debris. The driftline was mostly thin and patchy and made of sea grass and small rocks with some mussle shells. The creeks were low and easy to cross. I'm happy to say, there wasn't a whole lot of anything unwanted going on.
