Report Details

It was a beautiful day. I saw more people walking/jogging the road than usual but fewer people on the beach. Social distancing was observed, but most people weren't wearing masks. The parking areas closest to the beach access at both State Parks were cordoned off areas, but people were able to park at other turn-outs to get to the beach. I did not appreciate any significant changes in the erosion along Yachats Ocean Road or Ocean View Drive, although the fences along Ocean View Drive seem to be slipping down the bluff.   

Conditions

Temperature: 48 F. Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 9.0 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 5. Number of dogs: 2. Walking or running: 4. Fishing: 1. People were not parking in the cordoned off areas of Yachats State Park north of the river, or along Yachats Ocean Road State Park south of the river. There were cars parked at other pull-outs on both Ocean View Drive and Yachats Ocean Road. Most people were walking or jogging along the road (without masks), and not on the beach, largely because of the high tide. Everyone seemed to be participating in "social distancing."

Vehicles

Cars/trucks parking: 7.
