There was brown-colored water in two coves below the bluffs and slightly more litter along the trail than is usually encountered. I'm guessing that the brown-colored sea water was caused by some type of algae bloom and not run-off, as there has been no rain recently. The area near the brown-colored water is also an area where many shore pines are dead or dying.
