“My name is Jeff McBeth and I work for the Inverness Public Utility District. Yesterday, June 19th, at approximately 11:00 am, a Professional Chef knife roll/case was found and turned into the Inverness Fire Department. I would very much like to get these knives back to their owner as they likely need and miss them.”
“Happy #SummerSolstice ☀The Summer Solstice will occur today at 8:31 PM PDT and mark the start of astronomical summer. The length of daylight is the longest of the year with just under 15 hours between sunrise and sunset.”

Here is one of the WMF secret spots in Point Reyes.

The bear saga continues. From a local: “Good morning! We just hit the road for a trip to Washington state, and about a half mile south of the Olema Cemetery, we had to slam on our brakes so we didn't hit a black bear! Kind of neat to see, not so good for pets 😬 We wanted to let you know!” (Thx KS)

Summer is officially here! The Haggards are playing The Western in Point Reyes Station tonight (Saturday). Get your party on. And if you’re vaccinated, you don’t need a mask...
A car hit a power pole on the PR/Petaluma Rd near the vegetable stand. Everyone is ok. Traffic will be closed both ways until they are able to clean up the power lines. Plan accordingly. (Thx DP)
On Via de La Vista in Inverness last night, a number of trash cans and trash can containers were damaged in a manner that looks like it was a a bear looking for food.

The straps were ripped off the cans leaving claw marks, and large wooden structures were knocked over to access the cans.

There’s a car accident by Pierce Point in Point Reyes requiring helicopter support. And some kind of transformer blew on SFD in Inverness causing power to go on and off in Seahaven.
Last night at 9:20pm on Woodhaven Rd. in Inverness, Jonathan Hajdu, who was visiting from Oakland, said he was approached by a mountain lion who was loud and aggressive. Jonathan said he stood his ground and made a lot of noise, but the mountain lion continued to approach him for 100 yards before running off.

This is an unconfirmed third party report, so make of it what you will. Jonathan contacted the park and let them know (although it wasn't on park property).

I have heard two other reports in the last two weeks of possible mountain lion sightings. One was in Seahaven in Inverness by Camino del Mar and Via de La Vista crossing someone's property. The other was from some hikers near Coast Camp in Point Reyes that reportedly saw a mountain lion on the trail.

None of these sightings have been verified, but there was this video shot in Inverness a few months ago, so they are definitely around:
