Report Details

A very nice day. Went to try and get better photos of the Harlequin group I saw last time, but if they were there, they were out of range for photos. My battery ran dead fairly soon anyway. I observed a strange tidepool creature, but had no camera! This report should be taken with the last one I did as the last one I covered the Northern portion of my mile and this time I covered more to the South. I did find a lot more garbage on the Southern edge, but also found a nice number of sea stars. Good to see them coming back.

Mile 116

Seven Devils cliffs, Cape Arago South Cove

March 16, 2024

There was a beach hazard statement issued and I wanted to see what impact that would have as we were experiencing the first fine weather after so many weeks of cold rain. I was charmed by a family of six playing on the beach, the children even playing in the water.
