Hazardous Sunday
 This morning's ocean swim was a hazardous one for Shaun.

The shark (above) came after him. Not to worry though. Shaun had the brilliant idea to take the fin off his foot and stuff it in the shark's mouth. Which was offensive enough to the shark that it turned its attention to Sandy who was escorting us in her kayak. A couple of whacks with her paddle, combined with me trying to get close for photos finally drove the poor critter away.

But that wasn't all. Shaun also managed to find a large, and dangerous, Box Jellyfish (photo at bottom of page). Its poisonous tentacles were five feet long, but thanks to Shaun's discovery, the rest of us swimmers were able to safely avoid getting stung (not that I didn't come mighty close while getting the photo for you).

All in all, we had a fun and exciting adventure swim. What a great way to welcome back Patti and Janet.
