June 14, 2015
Days of screaming north winds have drifted and blown sand, covering much of the high-tide line.
Days of screaming north winds have drifted and blown sand, covering much of the high-tide line. So no visible litter and only traces of shell fragments and small rocks resulted. A sizeable gravel bed appeared near the southern end. Only one person hunting rocks was out this cloudy 49-degree morning. The north wind was not so fierce as on previous days. The tide was a -1.0. Scattered gulls pecked at morsels in the high line. Sandwiches perhaps.
Temperature: 49 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: N. Tide Level: -1.0 feet.

Rock beds are the main attraction here, as 4 seekers with a dog at 6:30 a.
Two rock hunters, no wildlife, no litter were on this beach north of the Coquille River Lighthouse on an overcast chilly morning.
Rock hunters delight in this otherwise boring stretch of beach; 3 were mining away in a big bed of small stones despite heavy fog and their 4 at-large dogs.
I was not the only person walking this beach in the predawn dark on a calm day that became overcast.
