GANSBAAI, SOUTH AFRICA - OCTOBER 19: A Great White Shark is attracted by a lure on the 'Shark Lady Adventure Tour' on October 19, 2009 in Gansbaai, South Africa. The lure, usually a tuna head, is attached to a buoy and thrown into the water in front of the cage with the divers. The waters off Gansbaai are the best place in the world to see Great White Sharks, due to the abundance of prey such as seals and penguins which live and breed on Dyer Island, which lies 8km from the mainland.

Woah! There has been a lot going on at the Jersey Shore over the past few months. Now the news that officials say a teen was bitten by a shark at the Jersey Shore sure does add to it. There has been numerous dead whales to wash up along different beaches, there has been numerous dead dolphins that washed up along the shoreline, various beach towns have implemented different rules and bans for this upcoming season based off the havoc that happened over the last few summers. Wildwood just announced they banned alcohol on the beach and the boardwalk. Sea Isle City banned backpacks and adopted a curfew. Ocean City adopted a “breach of peace” ordinance.

Needless to say the news that a teenager was bitten by a shark at the Jersey Shore is a shock. Especially leading up to Memorial Day Weekend! I actually stopped at the beach in Stone Harbor after my Acme appearance in Cape May Courthouse and there was so many people in the water. My thought has always been enjoy the beach, but just remember it’s the shark’s house.

  • Whales Washing Ashore Has Been Alarming

    There has been so many whales, it seemed to happen with the colder temp outside, which is interesting because whales tend to favor the colder water.
