All Mile 221 Reports
This is my first report in 2020 although I have walked all or part of this mile several times this summer.
The sand is starting to wash away and some rocks that haven't been seen since July are beginning to reappear.
It was a beautiful, sunny day with no wind and a very low incoming tide.
I accessed the beach from NW 68th St which is just south of Schooner Point and the southern end of mile 221.
There was nothing startling or unusual about this beachwalk except that we noted significant destruction of a staircase and its foundation below the large vacation rentals just south of Moolack Beach.
38 is a large number of people on this section of beach for any time of year but it was a sunny, windless day so it was perfect for beach walking.
