Saw 3 beachcombers, two women with two small children enjoying running into the water, and one surf casting fisherman. Relatively small amount of man-made debris on shore, a few glass and plastic bottles, some Styrofoam (two deteriorated fishing floats about 20 inches long,the rest small pieces). Very few birds seen along water line, no dead birds.No baseline to tell if there have been any changes man-made or natural.
