Mile 4 Report
December 14, 2010
On this beautiful day in mid-December, the beach areas were littered with large root balls from trees and other large logs which had, along with kelp debris, littered around the beach area and, i suspect, were uncovered from the strong wave action of previous days storms.
On this beautiful day in mid-December, the beach areas were littered with large root balls from trees and other large logs which had, along with kelp debris, littered around the beach area and, i suspect, were uncovered from the strong wave action of previous days storms. Normally, these large logs, etc. are closer up to the banks. All was calm, a few seagulls soaring around, watching our every move, and sparkling blue water in the little alcove that makes up the North Jetty Beach. It was fun talking with the couple from Medford area who were, needless to say, enthralled with this beach and its beauty. It was a privilege to be down there on this day.

Seaweeds and seagrass, Small rocks, Wood pieces. Very large driftwood root balls and large logs
Newly exposed roots/trees falling. The large logs which were washed up onto the access to the beach at the North Jetty remain locked in place. I was hoping that the storms of late would dislodge them, but to no avail as yet. We need a confluence of high tide and extreme winds and wave
