Oh, how I miss living near Bondi Beach but I don't miss this - Aaaaarghhh - Shark!

Different morning down at Bondi today. No waves. Zip. Barely anyone in the water...no swimmers doing laps of the bay, very few shore paddlers. What's up?
Well we had a special guest last night at Bondi - not Rasta, not Taj... just a large shark around the south headland at 6pm. The shark faffed about, headed into Mackenzie's Bay, had a sniff around before being disturbed by a brave Anthony Carroll on the beachies jetski. Around 50 onlookers from the cliff witnessed the special visit...thanks to Dan Matthewson for snapping a few shots for the bumps.
Rod Kerr has been a lifeguard down at Bondi for ten years. Rod reckons it's the biggest he's seen in Bondi for a decade ...calling it around 12 foot...Bronzer or Tiger. It's said the attraction was a spearfish man burleying up off the south headland. No one hurt...the big fish headed back out to sea in search for a snack. The beachies evacuated the beaches nonetheless...
