Report Details

King tides were to occur January 30, however due to predicted rain at that time, we elected to enjoy sunshine so went on the 28th. Tide was predicted at 8.4, and we were there 3 hrs before high tide. Waves were still strong at noon, so unable to see barnacles or sea stars. Due to the lovely weather many people were enjoying the area, several on the rocks at Cook's Chasm.

I normally don't report on Mile 190 but since I've been a volunteer naturalist/interpretive ranger at Cape Perpetua since 2008, I can report on those things that have been changing over the years.

Mile 190

April 12, 2016

The rock walls appear to have been scoured of small blue mussels and the only sea star noted was in a depression at the top of a rock at the western edge of the beach, which also appeared to be part of a healthy community with anemone.
