Report Details

It was a windy day on Ocean Beach.  Since my previous visit, the sand banks are forming and the rock fields present during the winter are almost completely covered.  The stairs from Oregon Homes that had been destroyed in the King Tides have been replaced.  The concrete footings are still on the beach, not sure about their removal.  The debris line had very few plastics but lots of broken sand dollars, more than I have previously observed.  The only driftwood present is on the north end of the beach.
