Actions & Comments

I was wishing I had a camera with me, not only for the salmon, but mostly to shoot the ravaging, -or what those doing the work would probably call excavating- on the cliff. It's at the southern end of my mile, or maybe into the next. I do hope this work is being done legally, but I'm still appalled.

Mile 213

Henderson Creek, South Beach SP south

April 24, 2024

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.
