Mile 179 Report

A quick trip to check the Heceta Lighthouse Beach.
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.
Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light.
