Report Details

On a beautiful sunny and calm morning on March 16, 2007 at 10 a.m. we walked our mile from the State Park to the South Jetty. The tide was coming in. At the State Park we counted 7 cars, and along the beach we met 21 people and 9 dogs, plus 2 people were watching from the new platform above the dunes. 4 people were surfing. The beach was very clean, there were a few old heaps of kelp left and broken shells were scattered about. Halfway between the State Park and the Jetty we saw tire marks and when we came to the jetty there we saw that the vehicle had entered from the jetty and had left irregular tracks from the jetty to the beach but the lower tracks had been washed out by the incoming tide except those we had seen earlier. Overall it seemed that there was not much change from three month ago, however, sand had piled up on the top of the jetty. On the jetty were 11 cars, 5 people were fishing, and on the road to the jetty 8 cars were parked. A man with a dog walked along the road.
