DSD keeping her eyes peeled for sharks as we have our coffee Local viewers. The day after the shark attack This is what happens here - cars pull in and people just stand and stare at the sea. Sometimes for ages. Everyone is stunned - and fascinated. Of course, the fact that the shark alert siren has gone off 5 times this morning has helped swell the numbers of viewers. And the fact that today's shark was visible from up here too. We (DSD, who came up for coffee, and moi) saw it from the deck: a small one by yesterday's standards. We have some details about yesteday's incident now: the victim was Roy (or as the news cast says: 'Lloyd') Skinner, 37, actually a Zimbabwean who had been living in the Congo. He and his wife had been here on holiday for about a month. DH heard some horrible details from a couple who witnessed the whole thing from the beach. The husband, noticing the swimmer, had just said to his wife: "If a shark comes along now, that guy is toast." The next second, all hell broke loose. I will spare you the gory details of the attack - I know none of you want to hear that. . . And now - a toast to "Back to School and Life Getting Back to Normal" Clink.
