Report Details

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.
