Report Details

Sunday was cloudy but pleasant, and hence the beach had more people enjoying it than previous weeks. The main change to the beach is the loss of sand - up to 7 feet according to one park employee. As a result there are now many rocks exposed that were previously covered with sand. This change has enabled visitors to engage in rock hunting and exploring tide pools. Erosion along the bluffs has also continued. Not much wild life was in evidence perhaps dues to the number of persons on the beach and rocks.
