Shark Shock

Dan L. reports that they caught a large great white shark somewhere off Ilan last weekend. This is the first time he's ever heard of something like this. I have a hazy memory of reading something like this about 5 years back....
Here's a link to the story
Taiwan banned shark finning last year and this might be a sign that the ocean ecology is improving. I'm all for that, just hope that big boppas like this one stay away from me!

Yes, I know......I've actually got out to the coast!! Gazza went to see "Chasing Mavericks" on Friday night and after I saw him in the corridor and Dan on Friday night and told them how long it had been, well.........I just had to get out!

Suffice to say, I picked the most wind-swept awful day to renegotiate the mountain road. The boys at Pointies (top pic) were just floating around and the crew at The Cliff did calisthenics for at least 10 minutes....looked like they didn't want a part of it!
