Report Details

Humans were only noted well above the shoreline, specifically at the Lookout, where people parked their vehicles to get out for a few minutes to observe the seascapes.  There was a notable absence of wildlife.  (Note that I had seen several whales - probably gray - at the south end of mile 226 only two days prior.). No physical changes were observed since my last quarterly visit.

Conditions

Temperature: 60 F. Cloud Cover: Partly Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 6.0 feet.

Human Activities

Other Activities: The only activities observed were non applicable as they were primarily of people stopping at the Lookout and going to the observation areas to look at the ocean.. There are actually no parking areas or other access sites for the shoreline of mile 226, though an access site just north on mile 227 permits access to the very south end of mile 227. So, the above section is non-applicable.

It was a very pleasant sunny day and the ocean was calm, so visibility at and slightly below the surface of the ocean was excellent.
