LONG BEACH WASHINGTON HALLOWEEN FUN

The first big storm of Fall arrived the day before Halloween and brought heavy rain and wind to Western Washington.  We spent the weekend at Long Beach WA and were lucky enough to have breaks in the weather long enough for three good beach walks.  Washington State is expected to have normal Fall weather during this El Nino year with dryer and warmer weather coming after the start of Winter.  Sanderlings were present in large numbers and one dead gull (not sure the species) and one dead Cassin's Auklet were seem.  We lucked out with a very nice sunset on Halloween....
A question often asked is:  What causes sea foam on the beach?
For the answer go here:  http://oceanservice.noaa.gov/facts/seafoam.html
