If you live in Bolinas and know the young dudes who surf, tell them that waxing the cars of Point Reyes surfers is not cool. We don't wax their cars when they surf here. Sheesh. Kids these days. #getoffmylawn
Via The Point Reyes Light: "Hikers on Sky Trail in the Point Reyes National Seashore on Tuesday morning discovered two dead bodies, one of which has been identified as Thomas Fletcher, a 62-year-old from Petaluma. The park service has not yet released further details, but the sheriff’s log from Tuesday shows that at 9:33 a.m. someone who had spent the night at Sky Camp reported seeing two people—a man and a woman—who appeared to be dead."
"The National Weather Service on Wednesday issued a heat advisory for most of the northern and central California coast beginning at noon Thursday and running through 9 p.m. Friday, as temperatures inch toward the high 80s and low 90s in most coastal cities and the upper 90s and even low 100s in some inland areas. Those temperatures are 10 to 15 degrees above normal for this time of year, according to the weather service."
6:39pm - On Sir Francis Drake just east of Samuel Taylor Park a station wagon has hit a large tree which fell over onto the car and on the road. 911 has been called and emergency vehicles on the way. Proceed with caution, hopefully everyone is ok. (thx MM)
Missed this one yesterday: "The Coast Guard rescued three individuals from the water in Tomales Bay, Sunday morning. At approximately 8:30 a.m., Coast Guard Sector San Francisco Command Center personnel received notification that three individuals went into the water just off Lawson's Landing when their raft deflated.The individuals were not wearing personal flotation devices, nor were they properly prepared for exposure to the elements."
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??)
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...
A solid south swell moving into the area tonight, be safe. PRNPS: "The National Weather Service has issued a beach hazard for strong rip currents through this evening. Please be cautious in/around the ocean."
