Report Details

It was a quiet day on Ocean Beach.  Unfortunately, today I observed more trash in the parking lot and on the beach than I ever have.  I documented this and reported it according to the guidelines provided by CoastWatch.  I'd like to note that when visiting a beach, if you find the trash receptacle full, please pack your trash out and dispose of it at the next available trash can.  I also found two abandoned crab traps.  I found no markings or tags on them.  The extensive rock fields that I observed in February are still present.  Lots of agates and jasper.  I also noted driftwood embedded in the bluff close by the waterfall.  

Conditions

Temperature: 45 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: 0.5 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 14. Number of dogs: 2. Walking or running: 10. Quiet day on the beach. There were just a few people there, mostly strolling on the beach. Still lots of rock fields visible all along the beach. Good agate hunting!

Concerns

Litter

Vehicles

Cars/trucks parking: 3.

Driftline Content

Small rocks, Shells, Styrofoam, Ocean-based debris (from fishing boats, ship trash, etc.). There were numerous plastic bottles on the beach. It's clear they had been in the water for a while because they had small barnacles on them.
