Mile 214 was overcast and shrouded in fog this afternoon, but that didn't slow any visitors. People enjoyed walking their dogs, flying kites, and even horseback riding on the unseasonably warm/humid fall day. It's obvious that familes of whales are just offhshore as whale burps of all sizes dotted the wrack line. Other treasures in the wrack line included stranded moon jellies and a dead bird.
