Mile 177

This beach is one mile South of my adopted mile, but I decided to do a dispatch report because there is a de-capitated whale's head washed up on the beach, and I thought it should be reported.

The observation was very close to high tide, so there was less stuff on the beaches than I have noticed in the past.
