Mile 29 looked very good, clean and no debris other than one piece of old rope and a couple of mismatched sandals! We saw no birds other than on the offshore rocky islets.It's obvious the dunes are receding indicated by old pipe fencing now almost completely gone. The newer fence (surrounding the sewer treatment ponds) is now on the edge of the dune. Some driftwood has broken parts of the "new fence."
