Found a large decomposing sea lion today almost at the forest line. It looks like it had come to rest there on its own power and died where it stopped well past the high tide more
  • Sea Lion came to rest here far past the high tide line.  Measures about 8' long.

A very serene and peaceful day here at 269. There's a lot more sand present than over the winter. The storms of 08-09 were not that bad compared to the previous winter it seems. Lots of Dead crabs. Not sure why. No dead birds, fish, or other mammals. Just more

A chilly but gorgeous sunny day on 269. I arrived mid-afternoon at mid-tide as it was going out. Not a soul in sight. There was very little to be found on the beach. The beach was scoured clean save for large hunks of styrofoam and 1 dead pelican. Very more
  • The waterfall was present in October probably contributing to the weakness of the cliff face in that area.
  • There were at least 8 of these on the northern part of the mile

This is the first report on 269 and for myself. Thanks to Phillip and Olli on getting me started.A beautiful day here. No clouds or fog present. Wind was out of the north in more of a summertime pattern. Waves were breaking clean at about 4 ft. The beach more
  • Obvious major rock slide.  Probably from last winter evidenced by the lighter exposed rock on cape lookout and the lack of vegetation in the slide area itself.
  • Access here is very limited.  Someone had to really work hard to get materials here to build this.  Or illegally haul in the lumber by truck on the beach.
