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.
