Natural Changes

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.

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.
