Report Details

Winter storms have taken their toll on this beach. The sand is gone in much of the areas close to the bluffs, exposing many rocks that make walking on the beach difficult. We noted that the tree trunk seen in October is exposed a lot more now, and that bluff has changed shape quite a bit. There are recent slides of trees coming down off of the cliffs and large rocks on the beach. One area where we have noted trees leaning, etc, now shows even more erosion and the leaning trees are laying down. The stairs rebuilt last Spring by Schooner Creek Condos are damaged but usable.
