Report Details

A quick trip to check the Heceta Lighthouse Beach.  2 dead gulls oberved.  What looked to be the remains of a seal or sea lion with a large ball of wire inside.  Strange rocks were all over the beach.  I don't think rocks like these are usually seen on this beach. I'm curious as to where they came from. I kept one and have a picture of it if anyone is interested.  No humans on the beach while I was there.
