Report Details

Little beach activity; sands mostly clean. On the pocket beach between Battle Rock and Fort Point--where the waves do not wash things away as completely as on the open beaches--there were piles of tangled grass, kelp, and pieces of wood. These might be the remains of some of the land-based debris reported earlier on our southern beaches (following heavy rains and flooding in Curry County)

During a brief respite from rain, I found the Port busy withdrawing a boat from the harbor.
