Driftline Content

Small rocks, Seaweeds and seagrass, Wood pieces. Kelp, lots of rocks on the beach at Muriel Ponsler.

New Development

Steps down bluff. The last king tide had washed out the stone walkway from the pavement to the beach. The pavement was up three feet making it difficult and dangerous to get to the beach at Muriel Ponsler. I called a Ranger Deb and she reported this issue for me. When I came back today the problem had been addressed. Several pieces of logs and wood had been placed in the walkway to fill in the hole and to provide safe steps to be able to get to the beach. They bolted the wood together.

Actions & Comments

I call the Ranger Deb who reported the washed out entrance at Muriel Ponsler after the last King Tide. They have since done step modifications with a log and wood bolted together to make new steps.
