The ocean was rough yesterday -- large waves and white water as far as the eye could see. Every other wave washed up above the berm, some even beyond the dunes, cutting narrow channels here and there. I walked from the Pony Pen north to a large section of shipwreck. It was difficult to measure because the ocean kept washing up around the wreck, but I estimate that it was 60-80 feet long, with large iron spikes sticking out of it. Some folks think it's a remnant from the George W. Wells that wrecked near there in 1913.

Today was much quieter, and a much easier walk!
