Actions & Comments

Along the North beach at Strawberry Hill, I noticed an area where hundreds upon hundreds of sand crabs were congregating and dying in huge piles.  I watched a large number make their way to a location which encompassed aproximately 15 feet and die, some in mid-dig.  This area still had a some very shallow pools of water, which is where the sand crabs were heading.  It was a bizarre sight.  In all my years of walking the beaches, I have never seen anything like this.

The high surf (even at low tide) made for dramatic conditions during this visit.

It was a beautiful day at Mile 188, with the resident harbor seals dozing on the rocks just offshore and many gulls flying around.

There were two mudslides on the north beach, 20-40 yards north of the parking area, that appeared to be recent.
