Report Details

We have noticed that during the winter storms the sand on the beach moves (presumably offshore) and then is redeposited during spring. However, this year it seems that not much sand has yet washed back onto the beach. There is a large area along Lost Creek (roughly in the middle of mile 210) where cobbles and rubble piles have remained on the beach. Additionally, there are large areas near Lost Creek scoured down to the underlying basalt benches, which usually by this time of year are covered with sand. Photo is attached.

Conditions

Temperature: 51 F. Cloud Cover: Foggy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: N. Tide Level: 4.5 feet.

Human Activities

There were no people in the study area (mile 210) when I did the survey but there were 1 or 2 people around nearby, walking on the beach.

Driftline Content

Small rocks, Seaweeds and seagrass.

Natural Changes

Landslides/major boulder falls.

Actions & Comments

Some sandstone rocks had tumbled down onto the beach near the northern end of mile 210. It appears to be natural erosion. Photo is attached at the end of the report.
