Typical summer beach.  Most of the heavy drfitwood accumulation from the winter is gone ... up in smoke or used to make forts and shelters.  Unlike many past years, there has not been any mowing of dune grass.  Mile 294 to the south gets a lot more use and also...read more

Effects of storms and high tides over last couple of weeks striking -- northern half mile shows major erosion of fore dune.  Lots of large logs high up on beach; relatively few smaller pieces.  Fair amount of sand added to beach; looks more like mid-summer width than usual winter. read more

A very quiet time @ the beach, only a few people, with beach fairly clean. Sand has shifted, some drift wood is covered,although much remains. Have found some plastic bottles from Japan in the past, but this visit just noticed styrofoam.read more

An excellent hike. Very little trash found. We did encounter a gigantic bull sea lion -- we went one way, and he went the other. No seals seen, but plenty of evidence that they continue to use the area -- body drag marks, etc. Very nice to find another hiker...read more

Almost directly in front of our family beach cabin in North Rockaway Beach, I discovered a dead fish. Apparently an adult salmon of one species or another. Corpse is almost completely intact except for the eyes. (We get almost NO washed-in large marine life of ANY type.) Cause of death...read more

Found the corpse of a ray or skate washed up. Very unusual for this area. Body was perhaps 18-24 inches front to back (not including the tail and 30-36 inches wide. No apparent cause of death, a little decay but not much.read more

Found seal pup on beach. Called local police station, and the volunteer at the desk notified the local wildlife network. As I returned from my walk, a state parks person was at the scene and an adult seal had just returned to pick up and swim off with the pup.read more

The beach continues to have large logs/driftwood on it, making walking to shoreline difficult. Dead pelican noted among the driftwood.read more

October 19, 2008 - martyandchuck
Beautiful day. Many areas where beach grasses have been 'mowed'. Not sure if this is appropriate or not; will try to find out. After seeing 2 dead Humboldt squid on our mile, we heard that this has been considerable especially in Astoria.read more

Owners of house on beach drive have mown down all the beach grasses in front of house (the dune area) to better see the ocean (!!??)read more

Beautiful weather. Lots of folks arriving for Thanksgiving weekend. About 1/2 dozen dead birds sighted in the sand. They aren't sea gulls but not sure what species.read more
October 27, 2007 - martyandchuck
Overall the beach looks much more like it did 4 years ago when we first began walking along it. The sand is more level and less debris on the shore with no sightings of any dead animals, the weather was too good to be true.. global warming???read more

Quiet - saw bald eagle and also osprey flying over ocean. Very few seagulls - beach appears to be returning after sand loss this winter.read more
