Report Details

I noted one section of recent erosion where the sand ends and the cliffs begin. There are huge boulders laying below and a gaping void in the cliff above.  Tide pool life was very present, I was happy to see so many sea stars around again. I also noted anemones, and rock crabs all over as well. Common Murres, Guillemots, and Brandt's Cormorants we're nesting on the visible rocks and sea stacks. 

Conditions

Temperature: 55 F. Cloud Cover: Foggy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: E. Tide Level: -1.5 feet.

Human Activities

Saw lots of people out on Neskowin Beach on mile 253, but some were on or approaching the edges of mile 252 at the cliffs during low tide. People were exploring tide pools and sea caves, and some were climbing bluffs to get a bit further down the shore. From this point the shore is no longer accessible on foot. At low tide I am able to see a bit further with binoculars but not the whole mile as the topography changes significantly. Another report will have to be done from the top at select points, and I have reached out to land managers for access to the private property above.

Concerns

Apparent violations: None.
