  1. Thank you for stopping by my blog http://northcountytutoringcenter.com/ and thank you for your generosity.
    God bless you and bless your family

  2. Are you serious? Of the three beaches I swim at two made your list …1. Cocoa Beach (Brevard County) 2. Dayton Beach (Volusia County). I better stick to the gulf side. Thanks for the info.

  3. From a South African perspective… often the attacks are caused by folk who blatantly disobey common sense and logic. There are well know Great White breading grounds… folk dive, swim, fish, surf there… sometimes in murky water!

    There there’s the famous Zambezi shark… it enters rivers… same thing, folk cross in dirty water… asking for trouble!

    There are also know attacks where folk have gone out in small boats to catch the monsters… when the shark is longer than the boat it’s easy to know who’s going to win the fight!

    The old story holds true… I don’t welcome them into my bar so I don’t expect to go messing in their restaurant! 😉
