Uh-Oh, here's trouble

 According to Channel 7 news, a great white shark is stalking Adelaide beaches. About 5 metres long they think.

There's a good reason to own a swimming pool 😀💦 < that's the splash as I dive in, wishful thinking of course.

  1. You can jump in here! I was nearly knee deep. In snow.

  2. Iris Flavia; no thank you, snow is way too cold and you can't swim in it.

  3. Suddenly the Glenelg tram is less busy.

    1. Andrew; probably not, many people use it to get to the restaurants and shops there, not just for getting to the beach. There has been sharks at many of our beaches lately, most of them Bronze Whalers and a great white sighted further out but smaller. This is a biggie and I won't be swimming any time soon.

  4. 15' great white shark? In your neck of the woods that is nothing what with the spiders toads and snakes, swimming with a shark is pretty safe. And I don't want to even think about your Drop Bears!

    Still, I'd stay out of the water too.

    1. joeh; 15 feet is three times my height and almost the same length as my flat from front wall to back, plenty big enough to be scarier than the creepycrawlies. I'll definitely be staying out of the water.

  5. Yikes, it was the likes of those that made me switch from Marine Biology to Journalism in college. Stay dry.

    1. Arkansas Patti; I probably would have stuck with Marine Biology if I'd gone to college. I'll be staying dry for sure.

  6. He/she is at home. I hope visitors are careful about where they go.

    1. Elephant's Child; maybe at home, but a little too close to shore, they usually stay out in the deep. I'm guessing he's not getting enough food way out there, with no cruise ships around with smaller fish for him to follow. I hope visitors are careful too.

  7. Sit on the sand and let the waves splash over you, but stay out of the deep water

    1. messymimi; I'm not going anywhere near a beach anytime soon, but when I do I'll be ankle deep and no further.

  8. I've been reading about your shark. Quite the newsmaker.

    1. Joanne; did they show a picture? He's a big boy with huge jagged teeth. He was spotted by a fisherman when the shark reared up out of the water close to his boat and apparently looked right at him. so the fisherman skedaddled back to shore, as you do when a shark bobs up to say hello, what's on the menu?

  9. Heh, heh! The giant shark is not funny, but I read one of your replies above. It made me think: no cruise ships around with PASSENGERS FALLING OVERBOARD for him to follow! I guess maybe that's not funny, either. But I'm kind of warped.

    1. Val; that is funny. I was thinking with no cruise ships there are no smaller schools of fish that follow them for the food that gets tossed overboard, so the sharks are going hungry. Once they find a food source (people) at beaches they are often hard to get rid of.

  10. The most dangerous water critter that ever frighted me in the lake was a GAR. I will never forget one brushing against my mother while she was bathing in the dock. She shot out of the water like a bullet.

    1. Granny Annie; a GAR? Not sure what that is unless it is a garfish that is commonly available here battered and fried with chips.

  11. And the music from Jaws" swirls around in my brain! :)

    1. Haddock; yes, he's a big boy, most of the bronze whaler sharks that have been spotted are about 3 metres and there was a 3 metre great white too, this one might be the big brother. I hope he is safely back out to sea by now.
