Report Details

(Viewed 12/24/2016; Report filed 12/30/2016.)  The storms have brought in a larger than usual amount of trash, logs/wood debris, styrofoam, bottles - plastic and glass, some floats, some sort of plastic pallet.  Mile 130 is relatively cleaner than this 129.  I'm thinking I'll organize my friends for my own beach cleanup for my mile next week sometime - maybe a promise of cioppino . . .There has been some significant erosion of the foredune cliffs - see pix.  I was there at 11:00 AM.  I'm guessing that I was there at an outgoing tide level of 6.6, and you can see from the photo that the water was washing right up against the base of the foredune cliff, even then.
