Shark Attack Saturday

Not specifically about shark attacks, but the perspective of an ivory tower intellectual about the "gritty" beach life of Australia, with necessary mentions of racism, sexism, environmental ballyhoo, and all of the other things that obsess the non-physical.

It's dreary, of course, as the writer must point out how the beautiful beaches of the continent belie its horrible, horrible, socially un-just history. Goodness, how tiresome and unoriginal these people are, yet they continue to get published.

She may be the only Aussie afraid of the outdoors.

Postcards aside, Aussie beach life can be gritty as well as pretty!

Looks okay to me.  Your host at Bondi Beach in Sydney, reading the water and getting ready to shred some waves.
