Mile 197 Report
April 12, 2021
A cloudless, breezy morning on the mile.
A cloudless, breezy morning on the mile. Most folks in the campground & nbsp were still having breakfast, but there were a few people on the beach: 18 adults, 6 children, and 6 dogs, four of them leashed. A fisherman was scouting the surf for a good place to cast, and one adult was flying a kite. The bluffs were unusually free of people's initials and artwork. The sand was as low as I've ever seen it -- rock slabs were showing at the base of the bluffs, a novelty for me. I'm not good at estimating, but I'd guess that in places the top of the bluffs is 20 or 25 feet high. About 2/3rds of the way south on the mile, what looked like a newly graveled vehicle access to the beach had been truncated by the waves.
Temperature: 55 F. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light.
Number of people: 24. Number of dogs: 6. Walking or running: 22. Fishing: 1. Other Activities: Kite flying.
Only a few gulls
Small rocks, Seaweeds and seagrass, Wood pieces.
Much sand has come off the beach. Rock slabs were visible at the foot of the bluffs, first time I've seen them in several years of walking the mile.

Clean beach, mostly sunny day, although toward the end of my visit a chilly fog enveloped us.
Another beautiful day and a very clean beach -- impressive given the full campground at the height of summer.
Large chunks of bluff have fallen right at S boundary of Tillicum Beach CG.
Another beautiful day on the mile, warm and calm, after a couple of days of heavy rain.
A pretty, quiet morning on the mile; only about 30 people and 5 or 6 dogs (unleashed) were out on the beach.
