Report Details

This was my 1st time back on my mile since February.  Lack of trash was surprising to me(see the photo of what I picked up)  Driftwood on the shore was minimal.  We have had a lot of windy days with abundant sand movement which may have buried trash and driftwood.  I believe lack of human traffic has allowed for the plants to expand out into the sand a good 20-30 feet (see 3 photos of plants)  There were a lot of dead crab shells, probably the most I have observed on my mile.
