Report Details

November 15, 16, and 17 marked the first of the King Tides for this season on Ocean Beach.  The winds were calm and the temperature was warm when I observed.  The beach was covered with large amounts of driftwood, some very large.  The tide level reached the stairs before, during and after the high tide time.  Nothing but sand and driftwood was visible on the beach.  A few people drove into the parking lot and observed the tides from the parking lot.   A new development since my September report is the installation of a gate on the road to Ocean Beach.  Also, a park ranger drove through when we were there.  Thanks for all you do Oregon Parks service people!
