Report Details

No action, other than to document with photosSUMMARYI expected to see dead birds after the storms of last week. Maybe they were covered with sand, but after pretty good scouring, I found none. I picked up about 3 pounds of plastic debris. An enormous collection of large logs and driftwood has collected between E-Z Street and the State Park. Thirty years ago this beach had a lot of driftwood, so it was a surprise to see it again. The sand is flat from bluff to surf - no dunes!
