Report Details

After two days of seeing no one on our morning walks, the first full day of spring break has apparently brought many families to the beach. It was sunny and warm at the start of our walk, with the wind coming from the south, and was cloudy and cooler, with the wind coming from the north at the end of our walk. Nice to see people enjoying the beach!
