Report Details

Dozens of pelicans were out early fishing from the jetty south toward Table Rock; some close in, the majority out beyond the breakers. A few gulls were onshore. Lots of bull kelp and some sea palms were in the wrackline, and two largish beds of small stones appeared miraculously where there have been none for weeks. One dead Common Murre on the half mile south of the jetty, though four others were spotted heading toward Elephant Rock. Three people and five dogs were on my stretch of heaven, two unleashed. The tide was midway incoming toward high and the temperature mild and calm. Overcast but pleasant. No litter.
