Report Details

Pretty calm overall, didn't spend much time in the driftline, walked mostly down at the water's edge for the low tide. Nice tide pools, but the water is COLD. Very little litter -- thanks SOLV. A fair number of cars but far less than would he here before labor day on such a nice day, and not many exceeding the 25MPH speed limit by more than 10MPH. The fact that the county Sherriff was patrolling and had someone stopped at 328.2 was likely a factor there.
