Report Details

A dog walker and a rock hunter were on the beach this daylight-saving Sunday around 8 a.m. close to high tide of 1.2 feet on a clear, 45-degree morning with slight wind from the north. And that was about all the life forms visible, apart from a couple of gulls and a crow or two. Crab molt, shell fragments, piles of a slender grass-like vegetation and scads of small stones, some in large beds and the rest strung out along the tide line were about the only things of interest today. No litter. More erosion from recent storm and King Tides. Three vehicles along the straightaway to the lighthouse.

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.
