Though overcast many people were enjoying their beach time including a lady from TX.  I will keep an eye on the wooden pallet covered with barnacles and mussels—it's too heavy for me to lug off the beach more

There is very little change to the sand or dunes along mile 256. The most remarkable observation was of the number of Velella Velellas and their large size. read more

A cloudy Sunday evening, most people had left the beach. One man jogging with his dog. One woman climbing back up to Camp Winema. This is the first time I've walked this mile for CoastWatch, and I have not visited this beach for over a year. The beach appeared open, more

A lovely day for walking even though it was quite windy and a little cool. Large group from Camp Winema on beach. Lot of children running more

Enormous amount of log limbs and sticks. Indications a lot of it had been washed down via streams or just off the hillsides then all along the more

The outlet from Daley Lake is flowing closer to the foredune. This is of concern ever since the hearing about the dune erosion and Camp Wi-Ne-Ma's responsibility 10 years ago. My dog and I were the only evidence of beach visitors as it was a cold, wintry day to more

Beautiful day for strolling beach. Lovely sunset. Tangled piles of kelp as well as individual pieces all up and down the beach. More than I have seen there before. I had out of state guests who had not seen the ocean before. Very enjoyable more

Just the old dock that washed up on the beach. It's not an attractive addition to the beach. It would take a big truck and some strong men to load it onto more
June 13, 2007 - Lady S
An unusual amount of driftwood, logs and poles of different sizes. The old "dock" is very large (appr) 12X30 ft.and is readily seen when you walk on to the site. Appears to have floated in, not something someone brought there. No plastic, bottles or cans. Walking toward the water, more
