Report Details

It was a very sunny day. No fog. The beach was a vast expanse since the tide was out so far. Mile 277, 278 and 279 are still suffering from massive erosion, and trees being uprooted. However, for the first time in the four years that I have been walking Netarts Spit, there was vegetation growth on the dunes. Attached are photos of the new vegetation.
