YES! "After quiet weather with warm temperatures through Wednesday, we are keeping an eye on a substantial change in the weather slated for Thursday through Sunday. Confidence remains high that rain will return to our area later this week as a moist flow off the Pacific will bring rainfall back to our area." - NWS Bay Area

A section of Highway 1 by Muir Beach that was washed out during December storms is set to reopen by noon Thursday, according to Caltrans. "It's ahead of schedule," said Steve Williams, a Caltrans spokesman. "The work basically went non-stop once it started. The weather really helped out."

"Another time we were thinking of opening a restaurant in Inverness, a town fifteen miles or so away from Drake’s Bay north of San Francisco, where the waiters would be well-known poets of our acquaintance who’d work there for a week or two and then be replaced by other poets." - from a rememberance of the Pulitzer Prize winning poet Mark Strand. Sounds good to me. (thx DP)

Sonoma Sheriff's Helicopter Unit, Henry 1, had a busy weekend: "A woman injured in a fall was rescued by helicopter Saturday from the lighthouse at the Point Reyes National Seashore." That's what all the sirens were about on Saturday. Nice to know we've got such good team watching our backs.

Question: Why do people bag up the dog poop but then leave it on the trail? Is there a reason? Who's supposed to pick it up? This is not the first time I've seen this happen, so I'm curious.

9:38am - Anyone know what's going with all the loud, gun-shot like noises on the bay this morning? Are those hunters? Using bazookas?

High surf advisory starting Friday at 6am through the weekend. Very solid west swell with waves approaching 20 feet. If you go to the beach, stay away from the water, and let others know as well.

Local photographer and former park ranger Carlos Porrata has a photo show opening at The Dance Palace this weekend, the reception is at 1:00pm on Saturday. If you've seen his work, you know how amazing it is and how much he loves this place. This is a photo he shot this week of a Bobcat hanging with some Elk in Point Reyes. See you there!

"Officials with Point Reyes National Seashore will begin an experiment next week to reduce the invasive plant species on about 12 acres of national parkland, the officials said." Apparently they can't mow due to red-legged frogs being around and goats eat what cattle, elk and deer won't. The interwebs found this story mildly amusing and it's gone somewhat viral.

"Dewey Livingston knew by the trees and surroundings that this was Inverness, and more specifically Tomales Bay State Park, and the woman looked to be conservationist Caroline Livermore. We concluded the date of the photograph was circa 1950." Turned out to be the dedication of the Willis Linn Jepson Memorial in 1952. Read the original article, good stuff.

On a lighter note, I spotted this guy frollicking in the waves today out at North Beach in Point Reyes. Whales all over the place. And that's not a small whale, that's a big wave, be careful if you head out there.

Just in case you live way out in the woods and haven't heard this yet. The Golden Gate Bridge will be closed from midnight Friday night (tonight) until Monday at 4am. They're installing this nifty new moveable safety barrier and eliminating those brave dudes who drop the yellow cones in the holes. Kind of sad if you ask me. But hopefully safer for everyone.

10:46am - Haven't heard official word yet, but it sounds like the Pygmy Sperm whale that they found on a beach in Point Reyes yesterday isn't going to make it. Apparently he was a juveline, poor little guy. This picture is from KGO via SFGate.

Press Democrat has a story today about the challenges of cleaning up the now defunct Drake's Bay Oyster Farm: "Ben Becker, the national seashore’s marine ecologist, said he saw several hundred oyster strings on two wooden oyster growing racks during a snorkeling survey conducted from a 12-foot outboard motor boat this week, when the videos were taken."

"A pygmy sperm whale beached itself in the Point Reyes National Seashore on Thursday afternoon, according to the Marine Mammal Center. The 5- to 6-foot whale was alive at some point after it stranded, but its body was bloodied and it was unclear if the animal would survive." Please be respectful and leave it in peace so that scientists can examine it and learn what happened. A beautiful creature, very sad.

"Biologists who monitor the seal population recently spotted the first pup of the season born on the beach at Point Reyes. Most pups are born in January, and initially are about 3 to 4 feet long and weigh about 60 pounds. "

Point Reyes officially entered Spanish maps on January 6, 1603 when Sebastian Vizcaino sighted the headlands on the Roman Catholic feast day of the three wise men. Following Spanish tradition, the headlands were named after these religious figures: "la Punta de los Reyes" or the Point of the Kings. (thx EP).

Full moon rising! Look for it! "The January 2015 full moon is the first full moon after the December 21 solstice. In North America, we often this full moon the Wolf Moon, Old Moon or Moon After Yule. Astronomically speaking, the moon is full at the moment that it’s most opposite the sun in its orbit (180 from the sun in celestial or ecliptic longitude). For general reference, however, we can say the moon is full all night tonight, lighting up the nighttime from dusk until dawn." This picture is the same moon, tonight, in Italy.

Here's some inspiration for the New Year. A great post about how Colin Carpenter built this gorgeous, completely off-the-grid house in Inverness a few years ago. Living the dream.

Maybe Ken Fulk and Hidden Dragon should take some notes...
