For it being a rainy first day of spring break the beaches were pretty busy. The work being done at the "D" River parking lot may be casue severe damage to the Northwest corner of the parking lot seawall. A large portion of the wall has fallen since survey in...read more

It was very noticable since I surveyed in october that the "D" river was flowing straight into the ocean. In October it was crooked and channel like from the sand. Notice new graffiti panted on the wall below The Sea Gypsy Hotel. Sunday was a great day for the beach,...read more

This is what I found significant in my walk this morning: 1) There were very few people on the beach because of beach access closures and driftwood debris. 2) The high surf scoured the beach, pounding beach bluffs and riprap. Much new driftwood near Canyon Drive, less to the north,...read more

  • Note how wide and full the D River is flowing
  • Note the sand erosion
  • The bird was about eight inches long.

Beautiful day at the beach. Warm with a light wind from the north. The beach was very clean after what looked like heavy usage this past weekend. Just north of the D River, there was an unusually large concentration (estimated at over 1,000) of gulls---mixture of mature and adolescent birds.Other...read more

The D River has changed its course - rather drastically. It now winds around the beach in an elongated arc, rather than going straight out to sea as it usually does. We did a story on this:(http://www.beachconnection.net/news/driver081611_313.php ). Talked to Jonathon allan at DOGAMI about why this happened, and...read more

Another gorgeous day at the beach. Over all, very little trash considering the number of visitors. The warm weather brought out the sunbathers plus the picnic baskets. Not much change to the bluffs since my last report too long ago.read more

Big waves brought out some serious surfers while the hazy sunshine and very light wind brought out more dog lovers than usual. Seems that vehicles almost outnumbered the people on the beach or at least equated to very low number of people in each vehicle with the exception of the...read more

A hazy/foggy day with a cold, stiff breeze from the north. Cool enough with the wind to make my hooded ears hurt. An unusual amount of washed up mussels on the beach. Literally thousands of them perhaps as many as 10,000 -- normally there might be three or four in...read more

Another cool, beautiful day at the beach. A rare, almost windless (2-3 mph) day. At 49 degrees, it was too cold for the kids to be playing in the surf but over one-half of the people on the beach were of the young variety. Extremely low tide verging on the...read more

Another beautiful day on the Oregon coast. Relatively little trash especially after a very busy tourist weekend.read more

Great sunny day. Cool breeze (18-20 mph) from the north frosted my cheeks on my north-bound journey. A bit too cool (with the wind) to enjoy playing in the surf. Too much wind for kites, but that didn't stop the die-hards and novice flyers from trying. Many beach goers were...read more

This was a cool, hazy sunny day on the first day of spring break. Only problem area was the usual evidence of people climbing the sand bluffs approx 1/6 mile north of Canyon Drive Park. (Nobody was climbing during this observation)read more

Not too many brave souls out on the beach. Most were walking to get out of the rain. Only five were on the rocks at 15th street beach.read more

Light useage this walk due to weather. Very light drizzle but comfortable to walk. Moderate breeze 5-6 mph. Very little scattered debris from weekend visitors. Most around D River. The sand carving in the sand cliffs north of Canyon Dr looks as though it has caused some erosion--this could lead...read more

For being after a busy weekend, the beach was relatively clear of trash -- just a little more appeared to have been blown in around Kyllo’s/D River (north side of river). "Dirty" foam -- I’m by no way an expert, but it appeared that the dirty part was organic in...read more

Various activities included 6 people assembling a tent type structure for picnic, 12 huddled around campfire , 7 feeding gulls, 4 climbing bluffs just north of Canyon Drive. General info: No visible additional erosion on banks however, much more rock exposed at reefs at 15th Street and Canyon Drive. Shape...read more
