Report Details

Beautiful day. Beach very clean overall. Recent rain and snow have resulted in very full waterfalls. One small tree has slid down the hill in front of the house that has some long-standing drainage pipes. There is a new yellow sign "30A" facing the ocean, meant to help locate vicitims in case of an emergency. Did not visit Lost Boy Cave, as tide is seldom low enough to do that safely.
