You’ll want to check out the beach reports if you are planning on swimming or surfing at Mission Beach in San Diego, California over the weekend.  A two mile stretch of the beach was closed this morning, for the second time in 48 hours, due to the sighting of what is believed to be a great white shark (aka: white shark). Other San Diego area beaches remain open.  It is expected that Mission Beach will reopen Saturday morning. (August 27)
