Report Details

At last, a break in the rain and wind occurred. I took advantage of it even though the tide was high and the surf was running way up the beach. No worries. Also absent was any wildlife: no birds, no seals, no people. That was unusual for this popular beach close to a state campground and a town with beachniks galore. There appeared to be new logs coming in, as well as large branches. Ocean-borne trash was evident and I hauled out a half-SOLV bag full. Shells , ocean-based debris and Styrofoam in driftline. Erosion of the foredune, and wave overtopping was evident, although not while I was walking--mercifully.
