All Mile 208 Reports
(This is part two of my report as I divided up the mile into two trips.
Not much happening on this beach except human invasive use (driving on beach)
Ona beach is now buried in sand - come winter this will be pulled off again.
Most notable is the extent to which large chuncks of the cliff have worked loose.
