Actions & Comments

This area is south of South Beach State Park and includes the residential area north of 62nd St & south to Henderson Creek. Overall a clean beach but lots of wood/driftwood in driftline especially around Henderson Creek. There were some suds coming down to the shore from a "streamlet". Recycled sea foam or human water usage?

Henderson Creek, South Beach SP south

This time I concentrated on the area south of Henderson Creek where there is more activity. Photo submitted, & will be the last one. Beach was quite clean and probably because of the beach clean-up activities the previous Saturday.

A pleasant day on the beach at very low tide which exposed one large tidal pool which hadn't seen before.

We usually access the beach via an entry at Surfland which hasn't been easy in the past.
