Report Details

The beach was relatively free of litter-type debris. There were a few big 'clumps' of bull kelp and a number of jellyfish. It was a nice morning, and we saw 15 people taking advantage of it. One fellow was recording ocean sounds with sophisticated-looking equipment to incorporate into his own musical compositions that he puts on CDs and sells.


Temperature: 45 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: SW. Tide Level: 1.0 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 15. Number of dogs: 3. Walking or running: 14. Other Activities: 1 [recording ocean sounds]. The most interesting observation was seeing one young man recording ocean sounds that he intends to include as part of musical CDs that he creates and sells. He, Jack by name, said he was not a well known musician, and he did not offer us a business card.


Cars/trucks parking: 4.

Dead Fish or Invertebrates

Unusual concentration. There were a number of fairly large jellyfish on the beach (probably moon jellies) as well as a number of jelly-like 'globs' that we do not know the name of.

It was a pleasant, sunny day with well-separated groups of people--including young children--just relaxing on the beach.

From my perspective on horseback, the beach looked in great shape and was being used by visitors just like a beach should be on a nice summer day.

The beach was not as busy as I thought it would be on a pleasant Fall weekend--only 6 people on the beach.
