Report Details

Was unable to reach the northern half of mile 246 again due to water levels. There was miminal debris found on the second quarter and was able to carry it back with me. From the amount of debris deposited at the 3 car parking area, it looks as if beach goers pick up items in the southern first quarter and leave it there to be picked up. Noticed a purple tint to the sand starting at the 3 car parking area (labled with a "40" sign I believe) and then north until the beach houses end. Sometimes the color was evident at the surface, but if not, you could see it just under the first layer of sanding by scraping it back with your shoe. I'll attach photo examples. Further north past where the beach houses end, the coloring seemed to be gone.There didn't seem to be any noticeable shifts in the hillsides since my previous visit.
