Report Details

I was astounded by the mass of humans on the beach, so I thought I'd report it. I did not observe any violations, but +/-250 people probably did make an impact. Port Orford made plans for beach cleanups of both the dock beach and the Battle Rock beach for July 5th. I was not able to participate.

Conditions

Temperature: 66 F. Cloud Cover: Sunny. Wind Velocity: Moderate. Tide Level: 1.3 feet.

Human Activities

The most people I've ever seen on the Port Orford beach, though this is my first time attending the dingy races. I can only estimate there were around 250 on the beach. Everyone was behaving themselves. I am hoping my sisters will complete a full report soon, to seeif there is any lasting impact from all the human visitors. We did count 18 motor vehicles on the beach in allowed areas.

Seems like cheating to call this a winter report, with the weather conditions being so lovely.

This was an exceptionally warm Saturday so there were more people on the beach than I usually see but everyone was well behaved and loving the rare chance to be on the beach (and even a few brave souls in the water) without multiple layers of coats.
