Day 14 - Montrose Beach -Saturday 1/30/10
The most significant thing about today is the lack of impact we had on the beach. Jaber and I completed 15,100 lines yet a photo of the beach on this gray day, with the hard cold surface shows no mark from a distance. Jaber's branch broke twice and had to be replaced. The twisted shapes of the branches made it difficuly to draw lines that were straight.
