Report Details

It was quiet at sunset on the beach this evening. The beach was relatively clean of debris and the waves were calm. The stream down at the south end of the mile has dried up. I've been noticing more poles erected in random spots on the beach. Is this something people just do for fun? I don't remember seeing any last year.
