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!!!

Tigger - the West Marin School cat has been missing since Tuesday night. He is easy to recognize as both his ears were removed to save his life from cancer. He is beloved by the staff and students of West Marin School where he has lived for many many years. If you see him please notify the school office, Point Reyes Animal Hospital (663-1533), or Planned Feralhood (663-8497) (via Kathy Runnion)

The Point Reyes Farmer's Market kicks off tomorrow (Saturday, June 28th) and we've got some summer weather to go with it!
"After a cool start to summer this past week — with cloudy skies and highs in the 70s through much of Marin and the Bay Area — forecasters say we're due for the first warm wave of summer."http://www.marinij.com/marinne

Timmy who? "West Marin's Colton Baldwin and Peter Gallagher combined on a no-hitter in a 3-0 win over Novato South in a District 3 Little League 9-10-year-old game at Hamman Field. It came about three hours after Lincecum's gem in a 4-0 win over the Padres at AT&T.http://www.marinij.com/ci_2603

Power has been off in parts of Seahaven due to PG&E work since nine. Apparently they didn't tell anyone beforehand and people are bummed out. Hopefully it comes back on soon.

On November 29th, 2008, a man hiking in #pointreyes took this photo of a UFO. Anyone else have a good local UFO story? I heard that some folks had a very interesting encounter near Perry's back in the day.
Here is where I found that photo: http://space-man.de/straped/ho

"The Community Land Trust Association of West Marin and other local residents are mobilizing to purchase the 39-acre Coast Guard housing complex in Point Reyes when it will be sold next year by the federal government’s General Services Administration." Wow. That's a pretty big deal.http://www.ptreyeslight.com/ar

"Two hikers who died a few days apart in the same area of Mount Tamalpais both died accidentally, one from fall injuries and the other from hypothermia, the Marin County sheriff's department said Tuesday." So that should put that to rest.http://www.marinij.com/marinne
