Crikey!





No need to explain what happened here - but it was quite near what was my home. Fortunately the surfer survived.

Interesting, there was a 12yo girl attacked by a shark on the East Coast Tasmania at St Helens on about the same day. The coincidence is that her surf board had surprisingly similar colour/pattern!?

Hey Claye - yep - that's what I meant by "near what was my home". I grew up, often cheerfully swimming in the sea, in Scamander.

Missed that particular fish by 10 miles and over 30 years though.
