On a mild, sunny Friday in November we found the beach pretty quiet. We saw 15 people on the beach, most walking. There were 2 kayaks or in the bay. We have not seen them there before, though there is a kayak rental business at the Port. This was also...read more
Beach was looking pretty clean of trash at the surf line and above in the dry sand. Hubbard Creek has "drifted" very far south/east, exiting much farther away than typical.
Beautiful day to be on the beach. Wind started out light, but by the time we got back to the wayside...read more
The beach looked clean, people and dogs were well behaved. The landslide from January 2021 is stabilizing.read more
A group of nine people today were part of a training for a NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) marine debris survey training. CoastWatch coordinated and led the training, which was hosted by Redfish Rocks Community Team. This beach is a drive on beach, though no vehicles were on the...read more
The beach looked good today. Not much litter or storm debris. The previous high tide packed down the sand all the way to the boulders so it was easy walking. A few unique objects: an office chair at the foot of the dunes, a stuffed animal on a rock, and...read more

Hubbard Creek has "drifted" pretty far north/northwest, but it appears to be natural.
There were several groups of people on the beach and coming down while we did the report. I only counted the cars in the lot when we arrived. There were more when we finished. Most activities appeared "normal"...read more
Saw a cement culvert in the water near one of the sea stacks. Found a piece of coral that still had pink on it - not sure if that means it's fresh or not. Did not see any others. Sand was still high enough to cover the shipwreck pieces that...read more
This visit was just a day after a series of king tides and heavy rain. More logs on the beach than usual and one massive new landslide. I asked a two of the few people I met on the beach about the "sea pickles" in the drift line and nobody...read more
The beach was quiet on this beautiful autumn day. We saw two people riding horses on the beach, which we had not seen here before and someone flying a kite. The ride was dropping toward a minus tide a few hours later. It was a Friday afternoon, which may explain...read more
Very pleasant day. Many people enjoying the beach. Dead birds distributed throughout mile, at least 3 different species. Removed a grocery bag full of litter including firework leftovers and dog poop in bags.read more
Took a short walk on the beach and found 10 "intact" beached birds, most likely Common Murres. (no gloves!)read more
Just taking a walk on the beach, and noticed a large amount of immature sand crabs in the wrack line.read more
