Mile 125 Reports (10)
January 17, 2013 - rubygoesA perfect day at the beach. Miles 125 and 126 were wide and appeared swept clean at low tide. Walking along the bluff, however, there was a great deal of plastic debris, mostly bottles and jugs. Filled 2 grocery bags and strapped them to horse. Also found a length of...read more
September 9, 2012 - rubygoesMiles 124 and 125 were much cleaner than usual. There was an absence of any rope or nets. Orange Styrofoam chunks were plentiful, as were aqua blue Styrofoam pieces, most approx. 1x1' size. Not unusual to see Styrofoam, but there was an unusual amount. Have left my question about the...read more
December 17, 2011 - rubygoesThis was an eventful Coast Watch excursion. The1945 wreck of the George Olsen was still visible,due to little storm activity at the time of myvisit on 12/17. Other than two very large treetrunks being deposited on the beach, there waslittle evidence of the usual winter wave action Ihave seen in...read more
September 19, 2011 - rubygoes9/19 was spectacularly beautiful, perfect for a Coast Watch report. No other people on the beach. I am puzzled by thousands of tiny jellyfish that ride up onto the beach with every wave. They sparkle like jewels. Six dead gulls, one being eaten by a young vulture. Brown surf for...read more

September 26, 2010 - rubygoesMiles 124 and 125, those just north of the north jetty on Coos Bay, must certainly retain their title of the filthiest miles in Oregon. Litter pick up here is like trying to drain the ocean with a thimble....discouraging. Natural debris (shells,crab carapaces, kelp/algae,wood pieces)in the wrack is braided with...read more
May 6, 2010 - rubygoesMay 6th was as perfect a day as Nature can provide for enjoying our beautiful Oregon Coastline: cobalt blue sea, waves to 3", picture perfect waves crashing into blazingly brilliant white surf, all enjoyed at low tide. A flock of 7 Semipalmated Sandpipers, closely followed by twoSanderlings. Other than a...read more
March 7, 2010 - rubygoesThe wreck of the George Olson, that 2008 smash sensation, lay covered up last year, but now it's back. Not too impressive, but there. Its one visible side stands 4' at the bow, 2' at the stern.Beautiful day, though a forecast of rain may have kept folks from venturing out...read more
December 19, 2009 - rubygoes12/19 was supposed to be stormy, but instead gave us a warm 56 high temp. and a partially sunnyday. Although the tide was outgoing, the surf wasso high that I did not risk exploring all of 126.My newly assigned Mile 125 begins at Coos Bay'sNorth Jetty. The jetty underwent a...read more
March 12, 2008 - flotsamThis mile appears to be unadopted. I submit this report to provide some photos of the wreck of the purported George L. Olson.read more
