Mile 220 Report
November 16, 2021
A cold partly cloudy day.
A cold partly cloudy day. The tide was already high enough that reaching "Keyhole" at north cliff of Yaquina wasn't possible.The beach only had 2 persons, but I got several pictures of partial rainbows.With chicks fledged, total bird count 50-75.The sand was clear of microplastics, although several larger Styrofoam pieces were pesent.
Temperature: 42 F. Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: 5.0 feet.
Number of people: 2. Number of dogs: 2. Walking or running: 2.
Cars/trucks parking: 3.
Seaweeds and seagrass.
Visible retreat of solid bluff. Some slides made more pipes visible while other slides hid previously seen pipes. I am no longer going down from Meander and NW 57th but driving to NW 68th parking lot, as rainy season creates a faster erosion of path.
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.
