Report Details

Rocks at the 36th Street beach access usually provide some challenge between the paved drive and the sandy dune. Today, the rocks were covered, allowing smooth walking. I have felt fortunate for not finding dead birds nor mammals on my walks for some months. Today's young seagull was an unpleasant surprise.
