Mile 197 Report
March 31, 2017
A sunny, mild day on the beach with only a few people in sight at the start of my walk.
A sunny, mild day on the beach with only a few people in sight at the start of my walk. When I returned, many more had materialized in the vicinity of the campground. (The campground looked to be about two-thirds full.) The cliff-carvers have taken advantage of what was a blank slate a couple of months back. The back of the beach was strewn with lots of medium-size driftwood all the way along. Bird life consisted of only a few gulls. Juvenile Vellella vellella had washed up in large, odorous numbers; there were also some scattered unidentified white objects about the diameter of a cigarette filter and a little longer. Litter was at a minimum though not entirely absent. Most notable was a very large chunk of recently fallen bluff about a quarter mile south of the campground.
Temperature: 57 F. Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light.
Number of people: 25. Number of dogs: 3. Walking or running: 12. Playing in surf: 3. Playing in sand: 6. Sitting: 4. Other Activities: Fying kites.
Cars/trucks parking: 3.
Small rocks. Juvenile Vellella vellella, enough to be pretty smelly, along the driftline. Unidentified white pellets, same diameter as cigarette filters and just a little longer.
Landslides/major boulder falls, Newly exposed roots/trees falling.

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.
