      Late Winter purview: A Coyote! I think he is stuck on that side of the tracks now
      he was very very skinny
      and dogs dont travel alone
      He was fenced in
      Also though, the creosote log last week at the Lorri introduction (low tide) is now dislodged. Did not move any rocks today.

      Attendance: Lorri (Golden Goddess), Diana (Jr. Clam Princess), and Sean Orr (President and CFO). Among the discoveries- 1 very large Sun Star (Solaster stimpsoni: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaster_stimpsoni), those 2 geese, baby starfish, many clams. One of them discovered later at home inside rock like this: www.google.ca/search?q=Penitella+penita&hl=en&tbm...

      Addendum: Lowest tide of the year- neap? Estuary forming, rivulets underground. Extended breakwater to farthest point. The farthest shore, a day so unseasonable in a sense- it's not summer. Dad boats.

      Attendance: Leroy (stagger) and Helicopter enthusiast (massive carrier- total seaspray!). A new duck. Stream is dry. Use outgoing tide to wiggle rocks like teeth. Sea worms. They didn't pray among our followers. The Estuary.

      Thoughts now turn to summer; after a surprise summerspring (it must turn cold) we have all tabulated and bore ourselves prostrate. Group shows and fevered optimism aside- the focus must now lie on a more formal approach to beachmaking. Real science now. Ahead.

      A major splash- a seal attack? orca?

      A fish getting battered... up against the rocks because it is so windy.

      So many things in the air right now.

      Giant Hogweed sighting. Evidence of cut-offs, a few butts, and a bottlecap. Man who looked like Jerry Stiller offered me a smoke. Creek partially destroyed. Heron on way back.

      New bench over looking beach installed. Two crack people asked us, "hey do you wanna see a baby sturgeon?". We said yes. It was an eel. They fought about what kind of container to put it in so they could take it home. Saw Cloudface, sat for a bit. Left.
