Shipwrecks, Scalawags & Scavengers

On October 4, Pacifica Coastside Museum welcomed back Joann Semones, shipwreck aficionado and author of Pirates, Pinnacles, and Petticoats: The Shipwrecks of Point Pinos and Monterey Bay, a painstakingly researched account of maritime tragedies that convincingly ties together the first U.S. female lighthouse keeper, Robert Lewis Stevenson, and even Leonard DiCaprio. Semones also mentioned the 143rd anniversary celebration of Pigeon Point Lighthouse on November 14 from 1 to 7 p.m. and a piece of an 1880s shipwreck that washed up recently in Half Moon Bay.
