Mile 229 Report

It’s a beautiful sunny day at the beach with little wind.
It’s a beautiful sunny day at the beach with little wind. All along mp229 all is quiet except for an occasional person or couple, generally with a dog or two on leash, taking a stroll along the oceanfront on the LWC path. There is nothing unusual to report along most of the mile. There are several Styrofoam floats stranded high & dry on the rocks in a cleft near the north end of the Little Whale Cove development , but little else of anything human-made. Last year I saw two Canada geese in Little Whale Cove. Today there were four adults and seven goslings hanging out in the cove.
