Mile 153 Report
March 14, 2012
A very blustery day, few birds, little driftline content.
A very blustery day, few birds, little driftline content. The dune face is built up as it usually is in the winter with driftwood pushed up to it's base. Brown algae bloom along Mile 152 and 153.
Temperature: 45 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: S. Tide Level: 1.0 feet.
It was surprising to see anyone at the beach considering the weather and tree blowdowns of the previous 2 days! The drive from 101 down to the beach had been somewhat cleared of the trees by sawing but the trees were still in the roadway to be driven over, under and around.
Cars/trucks parking: 1. ATVs/OHVs parking: 1. Cars/trucks on beach, allowed: 1. ATVs/OHVs on beach, allowed: 1.
About 3 dozen sanderlings on our mile and 3 seagulls. Beach clear of seaweed and jellies and shrimp and crab molts.

All Mile 153 Reports
Very foggy start to the walk, by the time we left the beach it was clear at 10:49am.
A beautiful sunny, windy day for a walk on the beach. Disturbing to see that an ATV had driven from past the north of our mile down to the bottom 1/4 of our mile in the Plover Nesting Protection zone.
