Quiet, pleasant afternoon on the beach.
Quiet, pleasant afternoon on the beach. Cool breeze, not too strong. Very few people out strolling, walking and some playing with their dogs (all small, friendly and under good control). Lots of sand, all still damp from recent rains and well-packed for easy walking. Three bunches of gulls, and one interloper of a pelican, all just hanging out in the surf line, indisturbed by people or dogs.
Temperature: 50 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Wind Direction: NW. Tide Level: 4.0 feet.
Number of people: 11. Number of dogs: 3. Walking or running: 11. Most people just strolling; one woman throwing a ball for her dog to chase. Everyone pretty well laid back.
Cars/trucks parking: 4.
Three large groups of gulls at different locations on the surf line. One pelican gate-crashing one of the gull parties.
Lots and lots of sand; very little of anything on top of it.

Today was a beautiful day to walk on the beach with a dog or to take photos of the birds.
Although there are signs prohibiting fires and fireworks, they don't seem to be enforced.
I've attached photos of what appears to be a homeless shelter built into a cliff wall and a picture of children digging in the cliff wall.
An incredible opportunity to watch two bald eagle on Lincoln City, Oregon Beach.
What stays the same here and needs attention is the plastic drainage pipes hanging down the cliff from private property that drain onto the beach.
