Report Details

Spent 2.5 hours doing litter pickup. Litter now in Coves 1 and 4 in sturdy bags above the high tide lines and ready for pickup. Will need to wait for another low tide to do this. Probably eight bags of litter, plus a few larger, lighter plastic objects. Three or four large crab traps washed in, but fairly deteriorated -- can't catch or kill sea life. Someone visited since I have been there last and tied a dozen buoys on one of the area access ropes. Also found a piece of metal perhaps 16 inches in diameter with a flange on the outer rim. Possible ancient piece of machinery for logging or quarrying.

Conditions

Temperature: 45 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Wind Direction: N. Tide Level: -1.6 feet.

Human Activities

Number of people: 1. Walking or running: 1. Met one person who was there to gather agates from one of the remote coves. Turns out he is a friend of some of the guys who helped with my 2008 litter removal project from this area.

Vehicles

Cars/trucks parking: 1.

Dead Fish or Invertebrates

Unusual concentration. Large concentrations of dead mussels washed up in some of the coves.

Driftline Content

Seaweeds and seagrass, Land-based debris (picnics, etc.), Ocean-based debris (from fishing boats, ship trash, etc.), Shells, Styrofoam, Wood pieces.

Natural Changes

Landslides/major boulder falls.

Actions & Comments

Not other than to photograph. The two or three VERY large rocks near one of the access points have rolled toward the ocean -- natural erosion process. Glad I was not in the way when they shifted.

In 50 plus years of visiting this small cove, this is the only time I've ever seen it this calm.
