Mile 184 Report
January 7, 2021
A low tide and warm temperatures brought lots of people to Ocean Beach today.
A low tide and warm temperatures brought lots of people to Ocean Beach today. A great day to enjoy walking, rock hunting and fishing. There are lots of exposed rocks along the beach along with the rock fields on the north end of the beach. I noted lots of jellies in and around the driftline. Lots of waterfalls all along the high banks. The large pieces of driftwood observed during the recent King Tides are settled along the banks waiting for the final King Tide of the season to send them back out to the ocean.
Temperature: 52 F. Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 1.6 feet.
Number of people: 21. Number of dogs: 4. Walking or running: 15. Fishing: 1. A low tide and warm temperatures brought lots of people to Ocean Beach today. A great day to enjoy walking, rock hunting and fishing.

I observed a blue heron on the North end of the beach. I've never observed one here before.

There were lots of jellies in and around the drift line today.
Seaweeds and seagrass, Shells, Wood pieces, Marine debris (plastic, styrofoam, etc. washing in from the sea), Styrofoam, Ocean-based debris (from fishing boats, ship trash, etc.). Observed a large tangle of fishing rope.
Landslides/major boulder falls.
Actions & Comments
With the high tides and recent heavy rains, it appears as though part of the high bank collapsed.
