5% high thin clouds, calm to 4-7 mph NW wind, 59*F; Tom Edell, Roger Zachary, Mike Stiles. Roger and I parked in the main large dirt lot in the main seal viewing area and first checked the beach from the boardwalk south of the lot and then walked to the north end of the lot and checked the beach from there. We were looking for the two Emperor Geese photographed here yesterday. We then walked north along the trail to the paved parking lot where we met Mike Stiles. The three of us continued walking north checking the beaches. We met Kaaren Perry along the way as she walked south. We continued to short of the lighthouse road before Roger turned around to head back. Mike and I continued north, crossed the lighthouse road and walked to the next parking lot to the north. While waiting for Roger to pick us up, we checked the beach and surrounding area along the trail to the top of the bluff and back. The eBird Android phone app determined the total distance traveled at 2.65 mile. Using Google Earth, the one-way determined to be 2.56 miles.
