Report Details

Beware the sneaker waves. Observe all warning signs. Dress appropriately for the season, climate, and quick weather fluctuations. 

Conditions

Temperature: 41 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: 7.0 feet.

Actions & Comments

Even at low tide, there is an occasional sneaker wave that comes all the way up the beach to the rocks. I couldn't walk my entire mile on the beach due to these waves, but observed from the various higher points. The marked access 50B is usable but 50A is not. Also sand which covered riprap has washed, leaving a bit of rock climbing at some access points if used. Lately there has been more trash on the beach that has washed in, not left by beach visitors because there are no beach visitors at this time - too dangerous.
