The beach was exceptionally clean. Very few birds. We picked up one small bag of garbage. As mentioned earlier we were very distressed over the defacing of the bluffs both north and south of Lost Creek Park.read more

Quiet and rainy day on the beach...wouldn't have it any other way. Lots of kelp this time of year as the seasonal stuff dies back and comes in with storm activity. Fast retreating tide was beginning to reveal small cobbles and pebbles in new patches on the beach as the...read more
