Report Details

Glorious day on mile 291! Lots of people enjoying the coast. Mild wind, and plenty of sun made the walk highly enjoyable. Nothing of note, other than a high concentration of plastic bottles and an unopened can of beer at the drift line, and an over abundance of a common succulent plant that grows in the dry sand each summer. Today, this stretch of a beach and its human activity appear highly typical for this time of year.
