Report Details

Brisk mornings in the 30s with mild northerly winds probably kept many inside. But gulls and crows were active, as were 2 people with 3 leashed dogs. A dead harbor seal lay amid logs, the carcass pecked at by crows as I came upon it (reported to Stranding Network). A real logjam occupies the beach from the north jetty beyond the upper parking lot, now closed for the storm season. Three log structures have been erected below the parking lot and northward.
