Yesterday, as my wife and I were pulling out of our driveway, two boys and two girls, all smiling toward one other, passed by on their bicycles. One of the lady riders was very slim and had long blonde hair. :) Funny thing, when Karen and I returned, they too were returning from their trip. Yep!

As the hooked 6 foot Shark was being pulled toward the pier, a swimmer grab it's tail. One may see the Shark turning to defend himself and with one bit, the person starts to bleed.
