Report Details

Beautiful mid week day at the mile - only one couple on the mile with their two dogs. Mile was extremely clean with minimal tideline debris. Prior winter high tides have brought in quite a bit of drift wood of all sizes. Sand levels aren't much lower than last fall - a big change (at least so far) from last winter where the sand loss was significant. Some recent bluff erosion was noted but it's fairly minor.
