Report Details

The northern part of this mile was deserted at 7 a.m. on a calm, cloudy day at low tide. Three driftwood huts were near the upper closed parking lot, also marked by heavy charring of driftwood. Lots of gulls clustered near the jetty and others patrolled the beach. Small stones and shell pieces marked the driftline, while bull kelp lay in the storm line. Beach was clean and designated #148 for emergencies.What a difference a day made on the southern segment (#149): screaming wind, stinging sand, high surf even at low tide, and rain. 1 vehicle; 3 runners in shorts (ouch!). 3 oystercatchers vocalizing in the surf; a handful of gulls and crows. A large liquid plastic container and some sort of bench remain in the tide line: they're too heavy for one person to move and have been there for several days.
