Mile 49 Report

As I sat on a rock to watch the activity at the port, I observed one fishing vessel come in and the fish in containers were hoisted to the dock.
As I sat on a rock to watch the activity at the port, I observed one fishing vessel come in and the fish in containers were hoisted to the dock. One man had apparently just come in from kayaking. He made several trips up the ramp, unloading and transfering items to his car, the kayak last.Another man walked to the beach from the parking lot with his kayak and launched it, taking a short ride. I'm sorry I didn't have my camera. I could have photographed the kayaker going out, with a commercial fishing vessel being lowered from the dock to the water right behind him. This shows the versatility of our port.It was a good day for sea kayaking with calm water and no wind. As I walked up the hill I looked back and saw two other kayakers going out and a sport boat being hoisted up to the dock.
Temperature: 65 F. Cloud Cover: Cloudy. Wind Velocity: Calm/Light. Tide Level: -1.1 feet.
Number of people: 13. Number of dogs: 3. Walking or running: 4. Kayaking: 1. Other Activities: 6 people on dock, working; some in vehicles. Most of the cars (approximately 50) were on the dock or driving off of it when I saw them. Most belong to fisher people or those employed at the dock.
Cars/trucks parking: 53.
A group of gulls and 1 crow at the edge of the water, eating from two dead fish. At one point I saw 1 Canada goose walking near the gulls, but when I looked again it had left. I think they are vegetarians.
Seaweeds and seagrass, Animal casings (e.g., crab, shrimp molt), Shells, Small rocks, Wood pieces.
minor fall of dirt and rocks in a couple of spots on bank above beach (west side of Fort Point)

Signs of fairly recent bonfires, about 4-6 different piles.
During a brief respite from rain, I found the Port busy withdrawing a boat from the harbor.
