Actions & Comments

I walked several miles on this sunny day. Mile 236 has some very serious bluff erosion, especially where the Worldmark Resort and the Gleneden Beach State Recreation Site are located. There are many exposed tree roots and uprooted shrubs/trees in these areas. Orange cones were along the edge of the bluff at the recreation site. I was unable to access the area from my walk and am not sure if anyone volunteers to watch this mile or not.

The most important factor for me personally with the changes I've observed in this section of my mile is how impactful the shoreline armoring has been on the beach to the south.

The most heartbreaking part of my mile report today is that I couldn't even walk my entire mile due to shifting sand and the subsequent tide (even though I did this at low tide,) preventing a safe northward walk. I have been walking on this stretch of beach since the early seventies and never-- even five or ten years ago, would you not had adequate distance to walk the beach from the surf to the foredune. I provided on pic looking north on my mile from the top of a revetment that was installed a few years ago, that's the only way I could get a glimpse of it safely.

I learned that two shore structures (stairs built on top of rip-rap) were heavily damaged during a recent storm/tide condition earlier this month.
