Report Details

It was a beautiful, mild but windy, sunny day. I counted the largest number of people and dogs that I have seen since adopting this mile. A Bald eagle was circling over the beach. The beach was very clean and bare; the only debris was high in the rocks and driftwood. Minimal wrack: mostly just small stones and shell pieces. Several mostly minor rockslides have occurred since last visit in December, notably along where the drainage pipes are. I originally described the five sets of pipes (numbered from north to south) in the 2/19/13 report, and since there have been several changes since then I've photographed and described a revised "baseline." (See photos)

The beach fire close to vegetation, and somewhat close to access point was the main unusual concern to report, otherwise just the usual concern of trash.
