All Mile 173 Reports
Hundreds of resting gulls, 8 humans 12 dogs-No humans encountered beyond the north of the creek mouth.
It has been a couple of months since I have had time to visit my mile.
This is the first chance that I have had to walk this mile in several weeks.
Walked miles 172-174 from south to north, then cut across the dunes inland and followed Sutton Creek back out to the ocean.
The beach itself is cleaner than it has been, but there is quite a bit of debris that has blown into the dunes and into the area between the dunes and the brush on the north and west sides of Sutton Creek.
I was able to cross the creek and check out the part of miles 173-174 North of Sutton Creek for the first time this year.
