The waters off of Stinson Beach in Marin County will remain closed through the Labor Day holiday because of two shark sightings in the past eight days. On Thursday, several people reported seeing what may have been a great white shark about 300 feet off shore. And the previous weekend, a surfer and former lifeguard also saw a shark in the same general location. On Labor Day, swimming and surfing at Stinson is prohibited. The beach will remain open and visitors will be allowed to wade up their ankles.
