Report Details

Beach clean up day sponsored by Surfrider on New Years Day, so lots of activity. About 36 people and 6 dogs on 122 mile + mile to the north to jetty. One dead grebe and one dead harbor seal. Both at high tide line. Lots of New Years celebratory garbage to pick up, but lots of people volunteering to do so. I will need to come at super low tides to access little cove at south end of mile, in the future. Few shells, few small wood pieces. Low tide was high, so not much in beach. Removed styrofoam pieces, smaller than a quarter, 3 ropes (less than 1’ in length), besides New Years stuff (beer cans, spent fire works, cardboard pieces). One fire still smoldering. This is my first submittal.

The waves/surf wasn't nearly as high today as it was the last time I walked the beach just a couple of days ago.

Mile 122, Bastendorf Beach, is a beach I've walked many times for pleasure so I am well acquainted with it; therefore, I was very surprised to see what was happening to it due to weather and especially waves.

No significant changes in erosion or deposition of fore dune since my last report, though some foredune erosion is indicated near Miner Creek where a 20 foot log tossed completely up on the foredune is now slumping onto the beach, indicating erosion of about 10 horizonal feet of foredune.
