Summary:

There was a fair amount of trash including fishing line, rope, food trash, plastic, and empty small liquor bottles. These were located both on the rocks and the sand. There was remnants of a fire that was too close to big pieces of driftwood. There were lots of surfers and people standing around. There were a few different kinds of shorebirds including those listed in this report. Overall, there was no big concerns other than the trash. I picked up some fishing line and rope and disposed of it.
