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."
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."
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.
