Report Details

Most people were on the south side of the dune, not in my mile. Two hang gliders and 3 vehicles with helpers/onlookers with them on north side. A few people walking the beach, two with dogs. A couple kids playing in the waves. Very wide beach on this minus tide with a wrack line very high, way up the dune. High tide had been just after midnight at 9', low tide just before 9 a.m. at -1 so a 10 ft difference that really leveled out the beach. Some fog early that cleared.
