Anyone else hearing this odd sound at the beach the last week or so? I live on Railroad Ave so I'm about 100 yards from the beach. I can't figure out where it's coming from - what's making it - it happens at all hours of the day and night - seems to be louder at night but maybe it's because the rest of the world is quiet.

It's a 'oooooooooooooo' sound - repeats over and over without a pattern though - sometimes just a few minutes a part - sometimes longer or maybe I'm just getting used to it and don't notice it every time. It only lasts 10-15 seconds.

This is my second year living up here and I've never heard it before.

It's the wind blowing off the ocean between the houses. There are also fisher cats on the beach and are know to make terrible sounds especially at night. They are dangerous so they should be avoided.

No, it also happens when it's not windy
