Report Details

As in other reports, the primary human activity on or near mile 226 was people stopping at the Lookout area to observe the ocean from several hundred feet above sea level.  There were probably several people fishing off the rocks just beyond the north end of the mile.  (Note that the shoreline of mile 226 is essentially inaccessible from the landward side except for the extreme south end at very low tide.)  Nothing notable was observed in that very small amount of driftline that was visible with the tide at plus three feet on this cliffed shoreline.  No man-made or natural physical changes were observed to the shoreline, not even in the rockfall deposit just north of the Lookout that I have been observing for a number of years.

Conditions

Temperature: 48 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: W. Tide Level: 3.0 feet.

Human Activities

two vehicles were noted in the wide spot on Otter Crest Loop just north of mile 226. It appeared that those from vehicles were fishing just beyond north end of mile 226. Number of people could not be ascertained. Otherwise, people were coming and going from the Lookout area, where they were viewing the ocean.

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.

It was a nice day to be observing the coast, what with the moderate temperature, light wind, and clouds that covered the sky thinly.
