High tide was at 9:14 AM and there were some 5' - 6' sets. When we got there at 10:15 the waves were running up almost to the bottom of the stairs. Kris and I set up on the strip of dry sand next to the wall. Lots of driftwood, pieces of pilings, kelp and oil blobs on the beach. The water temperature was 56 but I thought it was too dirty to go in. It was t-shirt and shorts comfortable near the wall so Kris and I read, had lunch and then headed for home.
