Report Details

A beautiful morning for a walk on this mile!  Low tide allowed for lots of rock-hounding and watching the shore birds looking for food in the surf.  Nothing remarkable, just a lovely day with light wind.  I was able to pick up a few things on the high-tide line to get off the beach, lots of small pieces of styrophofoam.

Conditions

Temperature: 52 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: N. Tide Level: -0.8 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 8. Number of dogs: 4. Walking or running: 2. Photography: 1. Other Activities: 1 with a fat-tire beach bike. Everyone appeared to be enjoying the sunny morning with calm wind and the low tide providing lots of hard sand to walk.

Notable Wildlife

The only birds I observed are these Curlew types (I think that's what they could be...I am not a birder!)

Driftline Content

Small rocks, Shells.

New Development

Steps down bluff. Someone constructed a newly installed wooden stairway secured by support beams wedged into the rip-rap revetment. Likely will succumb to the ocean during an exceptionally high tide or king tides next year.

Man-made Modifications

New riprap or shoreline protection structures. New rip-rapping will occur soon for another 400 feet or so, an excavator is staged nearby on a temporary access made with pit run. The properties are posted pursuant to the OPRD permitting requirements.

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.
