From the South Jetty to Table Rock on a foggy but still morning, there is not much to report on the beach: A couple of people fishing, 5 crows and a few seagulls. Two vehicles in the parking lot. Offshore, the usual suspects were atop Table Rock--Common Murres and gulls. Litter was not evident for a change. Five log structures cluster around the area closest to the bathrooms, and a couple of more are down the beach around Madison Avenue. In short, all is well and quiet on this stretch.
