Report Details

Beautiful, sunny day! Not very many folks out on the spit today. As our walk was during high tide, we cut it short when we reached a stretch of beach with little or no dry sand (lesson learned from the drenching we got on the 9th). Saw a young Harbor seal in the surf; Northern Pintail ducks in the bay; and a Bald eagle flying over bay with prey in its talons!

Mile 239

November 12, 2023

Not a bad fall day for a walk with our out-of-town visitors, but walking the beach was impossible due to the high tide and big waves, which were reaching the beach grass area and bouncing large pieces of driftwood around.
