Report Details

A brisk north wind brought out seven kite boarders enjoying the low waves on an incoming tide. There was very little garbage on our mile, perhaps due to the heavy piles of sand that were covering driftwood (and other things) deeper than usual. We noted two dead birds, partially buried in the sand--one appeared to be a Canada goose. Pelicans and seagulls were out in moderation.
