Report Details

Clean beach, mostly sunny day, although toward the end of my visit a chilly fog enveloped us. Twenty-one people, 4 dogs off leash; 2 bicyclists, 2 sitting, 16 walking, and 1 ranger patrolling on an ATV. A few gulls, a few crows. The drift line consisted of tiny unidentifiable bits, except for tiny transparent exoskeletons no more than 1/4" long (see photo). There were also intriguing patterns that seemed to have been made by something tunneling through the sand. I don't remember seeing this particular kind of trail before (see photo).
