All Mile 306 Reports
We walked the mile on a clear, chilly afternoon. We picked up trash--one full bag. We found a little eel, the same color as brown rockweed! We saw sea foam blowing on the sand. We found a small skull bone. We found a scientific measuring device planted in the cobble with a float saying that it was the property of OSU.

Just wanted to report seeing 8 black oystercatchers on the beach just now.
These observations were made over the last 3 months walking the beach at different times of day but not keeping a record which I will try to start.
