Report Details

The 8 people on this mile included 4 other people plus the four of us enjoying a beautiful, clear day walk on the beach. Two of my friends (from Hawaii) were completing a coast to coast trip...toes in the Atlantic and toes in the Oregon Pacific. A photo of them completing the trek is included.Again, as usual, very limited wild-life that included a small group of sanderlings, a crow, and 10 gulls. I may need a lesson on identifying the gulls. As they flew by, it appeared there were three different species...a lone, black tipped wing bird with a whitish body gliding the dunes, 6 with darker bodies (that didn't appear to have the dingy color of adolescents), and a small group 3 others.
