Report Details

A house that is about a yard from the top of bluff has more landscaping plastic showing. Wonder what the plan is for this house. It is bound to tumble into the sea in the next few years. More rock exposed on south end of the beach than usual, but good infill on the rest of the beach. There is evidence that waves have come all the way up to the cliffs lately. Animal casings, kelp/algae, wood pieces, plastic pellets and Styrofoam in the driftline. Six people on the beach-two walking and four tidepooling. Three dogs.
