Report Details

This time of year we see an increase in the number of people on the beach - even more than during summer. This is no doubt because the winter currents pull sand from the beach exposing cobbles and small rocks, which attract agate and fossil hunters. This day was no exception especially since it was a Sunday and beautiful weather.

We have noticed that during the winter storms the sand on the beach moves (presumably offshore) and then is redeposited during spring.
