Report Details

A local beach cleanup was held on Sunday, June 17, so there is very little to report in the way of debris in the cove. Most of the logs that had come in over the past quarter were cut and burned, with a few purposely left on the beach, including the douglas fir log that was the topic of some discussion in April. Most logs are burned to keep them from washing up into the creeks that empty into the cove, which would disrupt creek water flows and possibly create flooding. Very few people in this area have wood burning fireplaces; most have gas fireplaces to avoid air pollution. A summary of the contact with the Coast Guard and Custom Agent regarding the douglas fir log in the cove was submitted in April, 2007. The only photo of interest I took was the one taken June 11 of the seafoam along the water line (responding to the sighting by Kitty Brigham). An attempt to upload the photo to the CW web site was not successful (rejected due to size). Also sent a photo of the douglas fir log in April, responding to a request by Curtis Ebbesmeyer.------------
