June 21, 2014 - Nelson's walkers

Nelson and Felly both got to go today due to their new double leash!! Ya. Was very surprised how warm and beautiful it was today. No wind. First time I've seen villila. Way bigger than I expected. Walked about four miles so covered a lot of ground. Families out enjoying....read more

Very windy again. Large amount of agates. Not much garbage on the beach maybe due to the winds. Looks like last week the tide went over the tops. Spent about two hours there. No Nelson again until the winds calm.read more

June 4, 2014 - Nelson's walkers

Extremely windy. Nobody in parking lot or on beach. Probably the cleanest I've seen it but I think it's due to the sand covering everything up. Big driftwood washing up. Very few birds. Some rocks on shoreline but way less than in the past. Usually find lots of bottles. The...read more

Calm sunny day. Fourteen people out, 6 in vehicles, 3 on horseback, the rest walking. Brown Pelicans were skimming waves. Heavy erosion of foredune noted. Driftwood structure from a year ago was gone. Lots of Razor Clam shells. Water line at low tide (+1 foot) was clean. Lots of debris...read more
  • Foredune appeared to have covered a driftwood shelter some time ago.  Recent erosion exposed it.  Estimated erosion from previous visits is 8-12 feet.

Calm overcast day. One group of about 70 Sanderlings fed at the water's edge. We walked through this mile to get to Mile 106 and noted that the beach was relatively clean, perhaps due to recent high seas. Two people used a vehicle to get there, one was fishing in...read more

Beautiful day, 10 mph northerly winds and sunshine. There were numerous piles of Bull Kelp more dense than Mile 106, probably from the early October storms. Sanderlings, Dunlins, Black Turnstones and Short-billed Dowitchers virtually eliminated the insect populations near the kelp piles. A driftwood structure was enhanced. Collected about 10...read more

Nice cloudy day with calm winds. Shells, animal casings, small rocks and wood pieces in driftline. Wildlife absent. Beaches were relatively clean compared to other trips. Foredune erosion was significant in a few selected areas, but the majority of the mile (>75%) was unaffected. This erosion was greater than Mile...read more

September 15, 2007 - Doug C
We visited this mile as part of the SOLV Beach Cleanup. This section was not as clean as Mile 104. Modest amount of plastic bags and bottles were found (15 lbs) and removed mostly from high dunes below the beachgrass. Surf line was relatively free from non-natural debris. Kelp/algae, shells,...read more

This was my wife's and my first CoastWatch visit to our adopted mile. We had an excellent walk, enjoyed the opportunity and plan on doing it more often than the minimum requirement. The beach was very quiet with only three fishermen right at the beginning of our mile (south boundary)...read more
