Report Details

The mile looks much the same as last visit. It seems like a new tree has slid down the bluff. Erosion is continuing at northern border of mile 116. Five rain-fed waterfalls flowing at full force into the mile. Rain water does not seem to bother sea anemones as several were open in the current of one of these waterfalls. Live birds included one Western Gull and one cormorant. Kelp, bull kelp tangles, small rocks and wood pieces in driftline. Low human impact (6)-tidepooling.

Mile 116

Seven Devils cliffs, Cape Arago South Cove

May 11, 2024

Two separate study groups were present, one measuring Gumboot Chitons and the surrounding algae and one studying sea urchins, ones living in pits versus ones not. I saw a couple families bringing their small children to South Cove, and a flock of pelicans.

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.
