"The number of great white sharks that prowl the waters off Tomales Point, Stinson Beach, Duxbury Reef and Bolinas for marine mammals is larger than previously thought, according to a new study." Good news in that 'just don't eat me please' kind of way.http://www.marinij.com/marinne

There's a pretty rad cookie and juice stand right now in Inverness Park. Stop and get some local goods from Sheamus and Paloma.

Tonight is a 'super moon' full moon. Hopefully the skies clear way. "According to folklore, we call this full moon the Buck Moon, Thunder Moon or Hay Moon. Because it’s a super moon, and relatively close to Earth, expect higher-than-usual tides in the days ahead."http://earthsky.org/tonight/ju

Art Rogers has a photo exhibit up at SFO now through the end of August. I love that this is where it is: Terminal 3, Departures - Level 2 - Post-Security. So I guess you can only see it if you're flying somewhere.http://www.flysfo.com/museum/e

The CHP are very active at Perry's right now. And I don't mean buying lunch. Although they probably are doing that too. Just a reminder to always drive safe and slow down where the peoples are.

"The federal government has given Drakes Bay Oyster Company until July 31 to shut down the cannery and oyster shack and remove its personal property from the shores and waters and Drakes Estero, according to farm owner Kevin Lunny.
That property includes the cannery equipment, 20,000 oyster bags containing millions of oysters and five miles of oyster racks—though the farm and the National Park Service disagree on who is responsible for the latter, which has a longer 90-day window for removal."http://www.ptreyeslight.com/ar

Found this via The West Marin Citizen. If you're going to make a video of the tug of war, might as well do it right. Drones and all. Well done.http://vimeopro.com/user101281

While on a surf check to the beaches, someone stumbled upon the wild dogs of #pointreyes. No owner in site, hopefully they made it home ok.

OYSTER UPDATE: I have know idea what any of this means. "It looks like the last oyster may finally be shucked at the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. by the end of December, judging by what both sides in the long legal fight over the future of the farm said in federal court Monday. Then again, maybe not."http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/

A lot of the sirens over the weekend were due to rescue crews going out to check on Will Schmidt who is SUPing from Canada to Mexico to support Wounded Warriors battling depression. Everything ended up being ok. Amazing journey for Will.http://www.areyouinspiredyet.c

I got the information for the Fourth of July races out of the Point Reyes Light. Some local folks have told me they start at 10 and there is no food. So I'm completely confused and apologize for other folks confusion.

Careful, car off the road just before Inverness on SFD. #pointreyes

"July Fourth festivities in Inverness take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., with the annual footraces and food for purchase in front of the firehouse." And by annual footraces, I mean the 'once-a-year opportunity to have your pride crushed' in front of everyone.

A temporary beach closure on the Great Beach between North Beach and Abbots Lagoon is in place from Friday July 4 through July 6th to protect nesting snowy plovers during this critical phase. In 2013, of 11 newly hatched chicks, only three survived past the 4th of July weekend. It is hoped the temporary closure will protect this threatened species. (via Loretta Farley)

Someone picked up a basket of tennis balls from in front of our family house in Inverness last night between 6:30 and 9:30. They were sitting in front of the gate at 98 Camino del Mar in Seahaven. Maybe this person thought the basket and balls were abandoned there? If so, would you please return them? My brother, Xerxes Whitney, a tennis coach and sixth grade P.E. teacher uses them to give lessons and in his classes at Windsor Middle School. Just please bring them back and leave them where you found them, no questions asked. (via Dakota Whitney)

A teenager was pulled into the beach break today at South Beach in #pointreyes and barely made it out (waves pic just before incident). Please remember to be safe at the beaches and don't be afraid to tell others to get out of the water. (Thanks to Kneelo for pics and story).

I happened to find this on the Twitter from this week's local papers. Is this a typo or just a very poorly written report? Or a miracle? Was a shark involved? (@daudig)

8:41pm - Anyone else hear all the gun shots on the bay? Hunting ducks or what?

So this week the Point Reyes Light has a fantastic photo from Art Rogers of a Great White that was caught off of Point Reyes and displayed out front of Tobys in 1976.http://www.ptreyeslight.com/ar
AND they have a lead story on the 'mystery shark bite' in Tomales Bay a few weeks ago, on the list of suspects apparently is a Great White: "Ms. Ludwigsen’s bite has puzzled some of the nation’s foremost shark experts: the cuts are not deep enough to match the teeth of a vicious predator like a great white shark, but attacking a human would be unprecedented behavior from docile bottom-feeding sharks that breed in Tomales Bay. Many of the researchers had guesses, but no one was sure."http://www.ptreyeslight.com/ar
Coincidence? I think not! It's Shark Week at the Point Reyes Light!!!
