Report Details

This is the first mile report I have filed since the re-opening of the Neskowin Beach State Recreation Area following the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. There were more people on the beach than is normal for a weekday at this time of year, perhaps because people are not at work because of Covid-19 social distancing guidelines.

There is a marked difference between the 1/4 mile of rip rapped beach with its gentle slope and 2' shelf of sand blown against the rocks AND the north 3/4 mile where the dunes are receeding and are eroding in height.

It has been two months since my last observation and, of course, there have been many storms, a great deal of rain and high winds in that time.
