Report Details

Great, quiet day on the beach. Not much wildlife around at all, but the swell was giant and crashing on this low tide. There was a dead pinniped on the beach that looked like it had been there for awhile. Nothing too notable on today's walk, except that the trash on this beach continues to be minimal. I only picked up 2 water bottles and a small length of crab rope!It began to rain lightly as I ended my survey and my beautiful day at the beach.

Really, it's a fairly unused beach, except for the truck access.
