Thank You!!! I'll be there next week! : o

Here's a quote from the life guard. It's enough to make me cautious!! "We've been getting a lot of sightings lately, usually in that area the Four Seasons in Wailea at the point. We've been getting sightings here and there about sharks."

The divers who take the FS class routinely see sharks off that area.

This is no big deal.

No big deal?!? Those sightings are tiger sharks, man-eaters. I guess it's no big deal until someone is attacked. Wait a minute, didn't someone just get attacked?

Easy to say if you are just into sitting around the pool.

"There are Tiger sharks in the water? MANEATERS!

Oh no!

Who knew?"

Of course there are tiger sharks in the water. If you don't know that the water might have tigers, you are simply a fool.

Unless there are other signs of problems -- a dead whale in the water, etc. -- it hasn't stopped me and it won't.

Besides, the pool at FS is nice but sort of boring.

I don't sit around pools, I might get hit with a piece of space junk..or an airplane.

Life is full of risks, swiming in the ocean is one though it is not really all that risky. If it was common to have shark bites it would not make the news.

Sharks ain't stupid....

They have come to the realization that Wailea has all the rich folk. The best fed, well-oiled, most interestingly flavored.

A veritable deli.

I'm sure the gentleman who had surgery last night on the gash in his leg would just love the last two posts.

He did make a mistake in that the water was murkey and choppy in the late afternoon. If the water is murkey DON'T GO IN!!!!!

We are heading into the winter months when the sharks come closer to shore to birth and to feed off the run-off when it rains. Usually in the months from Nov.-March, you will find them closer to the shore. Use common sense.
