Report Details

A beautiful morning to do our walk, this time with the help of our granddaughter Josie. Nothing unusual to report, just the everyday variety of "human" debris...lots of paper, plastic,cans, cigarette butts, abandoned beach toys & assorted clothing...two full kitchen bags worth.  There were a lot of beach lovers and their dogs seeking relief from the high heat in the valley.  The drift line was very clean...just good stuff like shells, rocks, and a few jelly fish.  Thanks for helping Jo.
