5/23/18 Lovely, secluded beach. Fishermen were out. I don’t recognize the cover photo from this area. The tide was low and it seems like it would be a great place to play soccer as the sand is very flat and hard packed. It was definitely not nearly as difficult as beach walks usually can be. My dog and I walked south all the way to Bennett Slough and out onto the fishing levee. Lots of birds, otters, and seals about. It was foggy but not very cold.

Great day, I decided to do all three trails along with all the outlooks, blinds, and vista points. It ended up being ~6.5 miles. Cost for use permit $4.25.
