Report Details

It was great to see so may people enjoying the beach. Parking is limited with most of the jetty parking lot blocked due to the Sough Jetty repair work.  Lots of driftwood has accumulated. Very little trash of any kind. My guess is that I have others picking up trash on a regular basis. I am on this section of beach regularly.
