Report Details

Froth of surf colored yellowish brown by some kind of sediment (or something), also observed what looked like some kind of plant life floating in water not that far off shore. Have attached photo. I know I've seen this before, but don't remember when, it's not necessarily a dangerous or harmful phenomena, just very noticeable so I photographed it.Also observed, 4 black oystercatchers at north end of mile, hanging out w/gulls where the creek flows into the ocean. I have only rarely seen black oystercatchers this far south (I see them fairly regularly on the beaches to the north of Yaquina Head) and then years ago although I walk this part of the beach fairly often.

Very few people on the beach; most of them arrived just prior to sunset (which was beautiful).
