Mile 171 Report
May 28, 2012
I frequently walk this beach for exercise, and I don't usually see this much debris.
I frequently walk this beach for exercise, and I don't usually see this much debris. Lots of water bottles, small pieces of foam, large blocks of yellow foam with plywood backing (looks like Japanese home insultation, but could be flood debris) and large white foam floats of a type never seen before on this beach. No conclusive evidence that this is Japanese tsunami debris, but it certainly could be. Whatever is causing this litter, the volume is steadily increasing. Please bring bags when you walk the beach this summer--there is a lot of garbage to pick up.
All Mile 171 Reports
Huge stranding of brownish-red "Pacific Sea Nettle" (Chrysaora fuscescens) and Moon (Aurelia labiata) jellies all along Mile 171 and Mile 172 today.
A nice morning walk today in the sunshine to practice my social distancing skills.
