Maybe it's notable that the only wildlife I saw were gulls.
Small rocks, Animal casings (e.g., crab, shrimp molt), Wood pieces. There was not much of a drift line. Near Battle Rock it contained the casings from shrimp molly everywhere else there were just small rocks and small pieces of wood.
The big landslide from January of 2021 seems to be stabilizing itself as plants grow in. Very little sign that further sliding is occurring right on the shore, though there may be some higher up near the highway.
Actions & Comments
The beach looked great. Almost no litter. A small chunk of Styrofoam the size of my hand, a couple plastic of bottle caps (one from a water bottle and one from a wine bottle) and a few small pieces of rope were all I saw and they were up near the high tide line.
All Mile 48 Reports
Holiday weekend with good weather brought out a lot of people.
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.
Driftwood 5th graders had a wonderful day at their first observation of their adopted mile.
Curry County Schools
On a mild, sunny Friday in November we found the beach pretty quiet.
Beach was looking pretty clean of trash at the surf line and above in the dry sand.
