Report Details

This visit was made shortly after a big storm.I expected to find more storm evidence on the beach but did not. I guess it all was washed away or just not captured on this beach.However, the shoreline in general was very steep,in fact the main access to the beach from the Horsfall parking lot was closed as it was a sheer drop-off. Access was provided from another trail further to the north or south of the parking lot. Shells, kelp/algae, wood pieces, ocean-based debris (many plastic bottles) and Styrofoam in driftline. Moderate human impact (10)- walking. Three dogs. Evidence of driftwood removal observed.

On the last day of the year, the full sun, light wind and low tide in late afternoon made for a beautiful day at Horsfall Beach.
