Summary:
Lots of sand has been deposited already this spring. However, not as much washed out this winter as in some previous years. Sometimes the face of the foredune is a eight-ten foot vertical cut, this time there was no face at all. Sand was a gradual slope from surf line right up into the dune.

A friend and I, and our 4 dogs, hiked to the beach from the day use parking lot at the entrance to Tahkenitch Campground, and arrived at 30 min before high tide.  We've been down this trail a number...
