Report Details

The beach was clean but much sand has been piling up in waves and some large pieces of driftwood were at the water's edge. No one was visible at the handicap platform above the dunes. 11 cars were parked on the jetty and 19 people were walking about. As we walked along the jetty we counted 13 people fishing. At the jetty parking lot and along the road we counted 22 more cars and one horse trailer plus one person biking leading his dog along. So, it was a busy time at the beach.
