Report Details

There's not much to report about this mile that differs from the northern part of 102, apart from lacking the heron and the addition of a dozen or so pelicans out fishing. One person rock hunting with two unleashed dogs. Again, no erosion and, thankfully, no mosquitoes. Styrofoam bait tray and plastic bags constituted the litter. Otherwise, sea palms, bull kelp, bright green vegetation, small rocks and shell fragments in the driftline. A few big pieces of trees and two dead birds, possibly grebes.

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.
