Western Weekend in full effect in #pointreyes yeehaw.
@PRNSA - See you at the Limantour Beach at 10 am for #Trails & #Oceans Day!Come volunteer at the beach or on the trail! Meet at Limantour Beach 10 am
A Turkey Vulture reluctantly leaves a dead Elephant Seal in #pointreyes. A marine biologist who was studying the body told me it had severe head trauma and a lot of old buckshot wounds. Very sad.
It definitely 'shipping day' out at one of the ranches today. I was behind the whole convoy of cows going to meet their maker. One of the ranchers yelled out 'go eat a hamburger!' as I drove by.
Via Marc: "Friday, 10am Large empty cattle trucks headed out to the point (Reyes.) Somebody losing a herd? A ranch shutting down?"
I saw those too, Thought it was related to Western Weekend, but I'd say not. Maybe it's 'time for steaks' day?
The powerful documentary 'Seeds of Time' is screening tonight at the Point Reyes Presbyterian Church at 7:30pm.

Via Kegan: "from dave brast: Beware! Automobile break-in and theft
I just received the following email from Judy Spelman and Rich Schiller: One of our cars was broken into while parked on Limantour Road, near Bear Valley Road and virtually everything in it removed through the window they shattered. Police expect more such break ins in coming days which is why we're sending this email. Our mistake, apparently, was having one side of the car close to roadside bushes, which gave the thief cover. Take good care!

I just remembered to track this down. For the history buffs out there. I still think we should do a Kickstarter campaign to find the gold...

New signs! With pictures! I think it's interesting that the sign technique is considered an effective means of swaying opinion. Do they work? Who are they aimed at? Tourists? Locals? Are the DBOC signs made by the same people? #signs #elk #pointreyes #questions
Via Sheriff Doug Pittman: "Looks to be a busy weekend in Pt. Reyes, warmer days and warmer nights, not to mention it's Western Weekend! Plenty of events throughout the weekend starting Saturday night through Sunday's Western Weekend Parade at 12 noon!
Highway 1 through down town Pt. Reyes Station will be closed off for Sunday's parade and other events not to mention some of the adjacent side streets. I wish everyone a great and fun weekend and please be safe as I expect lots of people traveling our roads on all kinds of bikes, trikes and automobiles to join us so remember to Share the Road!"
Apple has a crush on Point Reyes. First the ads in the New Yorker, now it's featured in their iOS8 preview material. Maybe we can get some discounted product?

Somehow, my invitation to this wedding was lost in the mail. They did a pretty amazing job, I'm pretty sure this is what people fantasize about when they see Launch For Hire...
