Mile 220 Report
August 16, 2022
It was a nice clear day, with a slight breeze.
It was a nice clear day, with a slight breeze. In general the sand didn't erode/scour as much during the winter, so there is more sand on the beach.I normally go on the beach around 8AM--I waited until 10AM to catch low tide.There was extra glare of being on the beach later, so going back to 8AM.
Temperature: 65 F. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: 0.2 feet.
Number of people: 16. Number of dogs: 1. Fishing: 2. A total of 4 vehicles at NW 68th. Most of the people were walking along the beach, occasionally going toward rocky interpool areas
Cars/trucks parking: 5.
Saw about 100 birds-about half were at Schooner Creek at NW 68th
Seaweeds and seagrass, Animal casings (e.g., crab, shrimp molt). The sand was clear of plastic. There was some eelgrass. Some of the dungeness castings were "clean line" molts, the majority were parts or whole dead crabs.
Visible retreat of solid bluff. I particularly noticed that at "second pipe" area the pipes in the cliff wall weren't visible. Covered by erosional debris?
All Mile 220 Reports
A large amount of debris, 7 large wood/foam panels and lots of pieces of all sizes of foam.
New sign up at the Schooner South beach access off 68th St warning of Contaminated waters.
Started off chilly but the sun was shining and it was a gorgeous day on 220!
Continued changes on 220 due to the rains, high tides and normal loss of sand in winter.
Including photos of a black plastic pipe sticking out of Mile 220 bluff and odd milky fluid coming out of bluff and over rocks.
