Report Details

Since it was high tide, I was unable to walk the whole mile; also, that gave me a new perspective of the beach. The sand is bermed up close to the bluff. Another one of the drainpipe casings in the southernmost group has fallen out of the bluff. The usual seaweed, slowly decomposing. I saw one Red Mane jelly, and fragments of other colorless jellies. It felt very mild since there was no wind.
