Mile 11 Report
November 14, 2009
As the oystercatchers and surfbirds foraged among the recently exposed rocks of the receding tide gulls perched here and there.
As the oystercatchers and surfbirds foraged among the recently exposed rocks of the receding tide gulls perched here and there. Since the "view restoration" the regrowth consists of many local natives: salal, grasses, coyote brush, huckleberry, etc. The sitka spruce sprouts I've watched are very dense in spots and some are 3' trees now. There's a very prevalent shrub I want to identify for the record. It's interesting to watch the area's comeback. While it wasn't on my mile I did see a dead octopus washed up on Lone Ranch last week but it was quickly becoming crow calamari by the time I passed it again on my return home. Mile 11 visitors show much respect for the area, perhaps in part because much is not very easy to access.

All Mile 11 Reports
Last day of the year, a holiday, and sunny skies got more people than usual out to mile 11.
A gorgeous morning and a vacation week lured 40 people to the Cape Ferrelo View Point this Sunday to test John, the whale watching volunteer, on his 'whale speak'.
It was a calm, sunny day but my 3 family members and I were the only ones walking the rocky shore line of Mile 11.
