Report Details

A beautiful November fall day at Oceanside Beach, weather was mostly sunny and comfortable.  Winds approx. 5mph. High tide had just occured shortly after I arrived. Lots of folks enjoying the day and I haven't seen this many dogs on this beach before, it was nice to see.  Where there is normally mostly sand, the beach was blanketed with small rocks, pebbles, and bits of shells.  Made for a good day of rock hunting for people.  Clouds rolled in early afternoon.
