This Bodega Bay house has been raised up on cribbing and is being rebuilt. This is our second look at this house.
On 5-27-10 at about 1:20 PM, the Sheriff’s Rescue Helicopter unit “Henry-1” was dispatched to a vehicle over the cliff in the 20000 block of Oyster Catcher Loop in Bodega Bay. A 62-year-old Bodega Bay woman accidentally backed her SUV off the roadway, down a hill and into a ravine toward the ocean in that area.
The Henry-1 crew arrived at about 12 minutes later along with Bodega Bay Fire members. The vehicle was about 250 yards off the roadway and nosed down into a ravine. The woman was extricated from the vehicle by the Bodega Bay Fire crew. Given the location on the cliff and the serious nature of the patient’s injuries, the Henry-1 rescue crew long-lined the woman from the crash site on the cliff to the bluff via 100-foot long-line attached to the bottom of the helicopter. The Henry-1 crew then reconfigured the helicopter for medical transport and transported the woman to a Santa Rosa area hospital. (Sonoma County Sheriff’s Press Release)
The Sheriff’s helicopter transported Devereaux to Memorial Hospital in Santa Rosa.
The Santa Rosa Press Democrat reports that a witness called 911 when they saw Devereaux driving in reverse crash through an ornamental bush and down a steep grassy hill toward the ocean.
Neither the Sheriff’s press release or the newspaper caught the fact that this is the same woman, Anne Devereaux, who accidentally drove her car through the front wall of the Bodega Bay Post Office in February of last year. Thanks to alert commenter, John Grabowski , we can put the two incidents together and pull over and stop when we see her coming.

5-29-2010: Update: a link to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat story.
This is Saint Teresa of Avila Catholic church in the town of Bodega, not Bodega Bay.
In the Alfred Hitchcock movie, the birds begin to arrive on the school yard equipment and then attack. The children run down the street to the water front. In reality, the school house and this church are about six miles inland from Bodega Bay and the ocean.
But it was just a movie, wasn’t it?
With the roads and bridges falling apart around here, the fishing industry in the tank, the dairy industry on the ropes, and the marina all but abandoned, I figured that there would be a ton of money to jump start things around here.
But, Recovery.gov indicates, zero, nada, nothing for the North Coast.
So, when’s it our turn?
This picture of a motorlife boat practicing in the surf at Bodega Bay was published in the October 5, edition of the Navy Times. Yes, we do get some high surf around here at times.
According to a story published in the Press Democrat, on Friday, February 27, 2009, at about 2:00 p.m., Bodega Bay resident, Anne Devereaux, accidentally drove her car through the front wall of the Post Office.
Inside the post office, there’s a table with a waste basket nearby, where people will stand an sort out their junk mail and toss it in the trash. Probably, that’s what Robert Black was doing when he was pushed back against the wall by the force of Ms. Devereaux’s car crashing into the interior of the post office. Luckily, neither Black or Devereaux were seriously injured.
