Report Details

Beautiful sunny, but cold, day. No humans in sight. Two crows on the beach and a few gulls overhead. Surf moderate. Heavy frost remains in the shaded patches of the dunes and beach. Wood pieces and kelp scattered on the beach rather than concentrated in the driftline. Notable find was a black plastic cremation urn, no lid, no contents, but with label identifying the crematory in Eugene, OR. I returned the urn to the ocean, thinking that it belonged to the sea.
