Quite a weekend - 2 sharks in the water and one on the land! Saturday morning at the Point in JBay saw quite a bizarre incident - where a JBay local was making her way back towards the gully when she noticed a dolphin cruising next to her. She stopped to check it out, and next thing all hell broke lose.
The ou's who saw it reckoned it was like a Nat Geo Wild docci - with the shark breaching right out the water and chowing down on the poor dolphin. It only took a matter of seconds for the dolphin to become sushi. But rather that than surfer sushi for sure.
Apparently an hour or so after the attack 2 divers were walking up the beach when they were told about the shark attack earlier - their response "gee, we wondered why there were no surfers out!" The guys waited for the blood and guts to clear a bit and then some brave souls paddled out again later - but another sighting saw everyone scurry back to the beach!
Later that arvo a big 'un was spotted off the beach at Seals, just having a cruise by. Summer is here peeps, and our finned friends are back near the beaches, so keep your eye's peeled. Best not to surf alone, or in sketchy water conditions. Rather safe than sorry.
The sharks aren't only limited to the sea - turns out there're a few on land too. A car got stolen from the carpark at Pipe Sunday arvo. Not too sure of further details, but has to be a kak feeling to come off the beach and stare at the spot you know you left your cabbie in - and it ain't there!
Better to invest in a car lock available at Surf Centre - so you can leave your keys in a lil mini-safe locked onto your vehicle instead of trying to hide them on the tyre or under the bumper - the skelms know those spots!
Oh, and don't hide them randomly in the sand either! A month or so ago we were treated to some superb entertainment when a coupla guys decided to bury their car keys in the sand at Millers. But not under a bush or near the pipe mind you - just somme in the middle of the beach! So of course when they paddled in the couldn't find em...and proceeded to dig up the beach for the next hour or two. They even ran down to the construction site at the Boardwalk to borrow a spade!! I'm thinking they won't do that again in a hurry!
