Mile 209 Report
March 10, 2007
The beach gradient was steep even though underlay was showing some in the higher beach.
The beach gradient was steep even though underlay was showing some in the higher beach. Rock that came onto much of the beach in February has been worked to the high area adjacent to the bluff, producing gradients of one foot drop for 15 feet of run near the north end and near Wandemere. Only heavy, big seas will move that load seaward and there have been none of such this year.
Number of people: 4.
Cars/trucks parking: 1.
There was one very live glaucous-winged gull dragging a wing broken near the body. I did not try to catch it as I wasn't sure where to take it. Beyond that the wing was not repairable so the bird would have either been euthanized or been kept in captivity for the balance of it's life. Better that their money and time be spent of reparable birds and the balance of nature take care of this one
