Very obvious cleanup of debris from the recent storm. I understand surf riders did the cleanup. Excellent job!There is a huge amount of wood washed up on the beach behind the north jetty from the Siuslaw River.Lots of it being taken away by people.On the rocks just up-stream from the park there is a huge dock that is almost intact. I'm sure it came down stream in the recent storm.Three pickups on the jetty were obviously waiting for the surf to be just right for surfing. Each truck contained surf boards.
