The modifications to the trail to the beach have worked to make it better. Gravel making footing more secure.

Pleasant cloudy morning on the beach at low tide, saw good number of sea stars.
This morning CoastWatch hosted an educational walk with Stewart Schultz - 18 people were a part of the walk, but others joined as the session went on (for about 3 hours).
It was a beautiful and sunny day out on Short Sand Beach and in Oswald SP.
