A 380-foot cargo steamship involved in a deadly collision in the fog off Point Reyes more than 100 years ago has been located by high-tech gear 200 feet on the floor of the Pacific Ocean, part of a recent effort to look at area shipwrecks. (But where exactly??)http://www.marinij.com/marinne

Oh, dear. Yesterday we were biking down to Limantour from the youth hostel when a woman stopped us and said she had been chased by a buck on the trail and to be careful because it was 'the rut'. Sure enough, we got down the trail and there was a buck and a doe right in the trail not backing down from us. Eventually they didn't think we were worth it and they went up into the hills and let us pass, but it was a little sketchy. It's that time of the year, so take care when hiking...

More on the new bike laws. "Under the law, drivers can't cross double-yellow lines when they're trying to give a wide berth to bicyclists. Bicyclists also are entitled to use the whole lane if they flow with the speed of traffic, but must ride as close to the shoulder as practical. Bicyclists are also required to pull over if five or more cars stack up behind them."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

2:06pm - CHP is very active on SFD in and around Inverness today. I was followed closely all the way from Perry's to Chicken, wondering what I did wrong and how much it was going to cost me. Instead he went into the park to have lunch I presume. Phew.

"A federal court judge rejected an injunction request Tuesday that would have helped keep the Drakes Bay Oyster Co. open. In a tone that was sometimes harsh, U.S District Court Judge Yvonne Gonzales Rogers rejected the argument, saying the plaintiffs had no standing to bring a request for the injunction "given the lack of merit."
Rejecting virtually all of the coalition’s arguments, Rogers told their attorney, Stuart Gross of San Francisco, that she had considered issuing sanctions for bringing a frivolous lawsuit based on the “complete lack of merit” in the case.http://www.marinij.com/marinnehttp://www.pressdemocrat.com/n

Point Reyes dairy farmer John Taylor has cut the size of his herd by a third since the California drought started, and unless sufficient rainfall arrives by December, he will have to sell more of his 400 cows and calves. "On December 1, we're going to evaluate the rainfall and based on that we may have to make some more tough decisions," said Taylor, a six-generation dairy farmer.http://www.marinij.com/marinne

A follow up on yesterday's post, the CHP have been very active in the Point Reyes and Inverness for some reason. Someone reported getting a $300 ticket for doing a "California" stop on B Street yesterday. So be mindful, be safe and keep your money in your pocket.
