Report Details

About as good as it gets in February...mid 50's & calm...a most pleasant day! Beach was pretty clean, but still managed to fill a kitchen garbage bag full with plastic, rope, bottles and Styrofoam. Much more is probably covered by sand blown by the recent storms...will get to that later. Found minimal remains of a few birds but couldn't tell the make or model. Came across a huge tangle of rope and nets that must weigh well over 200 pounds, so advised 211. Too bad more people didn't enjoy this great day...nice to be on the West coast
