The WMF Facebook Feed
The West Marin Feed gained traction as a Facebook page and many of the local followers still find it there. Times have changed and Twitter has taken over as a better news medium, but WMF still posts on Facebook at least two or three times a week.

The best part about Facebook (if there is one) is that there is a lot of really good information that people are able to add to stories in the comments. Unfortunately, you have to go to the Facebook post itself to see these comments, they cannot be imported onto this feed.

A gorgeous night in Point Reyes tonight. And the stars are incredible.
 Friday, August 4 ,2023 at 8:09pm
From a local resident who lives near Five Brooks Ranch in Point Reyes: "Last night after midnight, our dog went outside to pee and immediately encountered what we thought was a bobcat. She came back in with two lacerations on her face so we took her to the emergency pet clinic. After picking her up from getting stitches today, the doctor said it was most likely a mountain lion due to the depth and width of the lacerations.

We are beyond grateful that she was so lucky as it missed both of her eyeballs, and she is alive. Home safe and sound now.

We wanted to share as this was so close to our house - reminding people out here to be safe when they and their pets go out at night time."

Please help me find my bracelet! It is gold with inlaid turquoise and sugilite. Last night, 7/27, it slipped off of my wrist somewhere between the parking lot behind Cafe Reyes and the fence in front of the white barn's field.

This bracelet is a very special gift from my husband of 50 years!

We are maintaining hope and offering a reward."

WMF was heading up Tomales Bay tonight when they saw that the raft at Shell Beach in Inverness had broken lose and was on the rocks. It looked like some people on the beach were going to try and get it. When I came back, the raft was on the sand and off the rocks. Good job to whoever that was that rescued the raft!

Information is limited but it sounds like there was a possible shooting near the golf course in San Geronimo and the authorities are still looking for the suspect. There is a shelter in place in effect around the golf course and if you see any suspicious activity, call the police. I have heard reports SFD is closed in that area as well, so plan accordingly.

Two emergencies yesterday in West Marin.

In the afternoon two kayakers were in distress in Tomales Bay which led to a full emergency response with helicopters. I heard that Shannon and Anthony from the Marshall Store assisted in the rescue. Everyone was ok.

Later there was a bad motorcycle accident in Inverness Park that required a helicopter transport. Our heart goes out to the person injured in that accident, I hope they are ok.

If you want current updates on these type of events, those are on the WMF Twitter feed (not FB). And if you don't want to be on Twitter (I see you John Aucoin), you can go to the WMF web site and see the Twitter feed there without going to Twitter.

There have been many rumors over the years about the Old Western Saloon in Point Reyes Station being for sale. A sharp eyed WMF supporter spotted this listing today on Craig's List. Maybe this time it is for real?

After fielding many questions about the mysterious white objects on the east side of Tomales Bay, WMF went to investigate. Turns out they are giant marshmallows. It’s a marshmallow farm. They’re extra big this year because of the rains. Now you know.
