Driftline Content

Small rocks, Shells, Animal casings (e.g., crab, shrimp molt). No really noticable drift line

New Development

Bluff development. A new building going up just west of Battle Rock seems to have pushed some brush and rock down towards the shore. One mad seems to have actually reached the high water line. See photos.

Actions & Comments

I assume that because the uphill disturbances are really visible from the busiest area of town that officials are aware and approve.

I did not notice anything of about this area before but it looks to me like maybe the builders are trying to put in a lawn and have pushed brush and soil down towards the beach
That big chunk of brush and soil is what looks new to me

Not much trash and minimal people activity, especially given what a beautiful day it was.
