Two Shark Attacks In A Day.
#1
I love it when the circus known as the Margaret River Surfing Pro comes to town, it never fails to entertain.

Quote:There are reports of a second shark attack off Gracetown on Monday afternoon.

The incident follows a confirmed attack in the same area this morning.

My bit of coastline is very sharky, it also has some of the best waves in the world, last month we had a mass whale stranding a few kilometres south and today two shark attacks in Gracetown, a place meant to be cursed according to aboriginals who speak of an undocumented massacre over a hundred years ago. A few decades back a section of cliff collapsed on a group of school kids taking shelter there along with teachers and parents at a school swimming carnival. There has been three fatal shark attacks there this century making it a very dangerous place to go swimming and surfing. Basic rule of thumb is, if there are seals in the water stay away but tourists don't know that apparently.

How's your neck of the woods?

My beach has a shark net. I wouldn’t go in otherwise.

For the non Australians, Margaret River is a pretty special part of the country. Great wines and beaches.

I'm 300 miles from the ocean.
A fellow can never be too careful.

I think death by shark attack is my worst nightmare. Every time I get into the ocean, I think about sharks.
Get over it or die mad.

Which brings up an interesting question . Is there anything in Australia that doesn't want to kill you ?

I hate the ocean, love the mountains. I haven't been for at least 20 years.
Now all I have to worry about are copperheads, rattlesnakes, rabid animals, bears. Maybe I should rethink this. Chuckle
