the sand is back in this area, very little kelp on the shore as compared to mile 2 that has lots of it. nice walk. only a couple of rock groins along the shore.Fire rings are in the area of the beach and most of the users have picked up their "junk" a few spoil it for the rest. I picked up broken beer bottles and styrofomcoffe cups well as fire stater paper left behind. I wonder if the Hotel picks-up debre in front of there place??
