Late in the day for low tide, near sunset. People gone home! Foggy and heavy clouds.

Actions & Comments
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.
