  • Note from submitter:

    There is a semi-circular bulkhead that is sometimes buried in sand depending on beach conditions. I put the stake with the orange plastic in front of the center of the bulkhead. I forgot a ruler to measure cm of substrate so I used my foot, size 7 and 1/2. Sorry, next time I’ll be prepared. I considered this a higher medium tide which the data shows around 7 foot. It would not take a pano so I added a couple of pictures towards Port Susan Bay. We normally have much more driftwood on the beach but in the last storm of )ct. 13 it all floated away to Camano Isl.
