Shark Attack, Shark Attack, Shark Attack

Yes, I finally saw one. I gazed into its jet black eyes and didn't blink. It gazed back at me, a kindred spirit. And just like that, we bonded. One day I plan on swimming in the ocean, and he will have been released to the open waters, and see me, and mistake me for a seal. And just as he almost chomps down on me, he will remember me from the aquarium, and let up mostly, but still give me just a little nibble. So that I can tell my story of being attacked by a Great White Shark to everyone I meet.



Ollie and I took a little trip all by ourselves to Monterey, California, which is a pretty awesome town. Seals in the harbour, barking loudly. I saw an Elephant Seal on the way home, in Big Sur. That was pretty incredible. Unfortunately, I made a VERY bad decision. I thought it would be cool to come home on PCH, which is a breathtakingly windy road up high over the ocean. It was seriously one of the most beautiful trips I've ever taken.

But Ollie got sick to his stomach and threw up in the car. Lesson learned. It's the 101 from now on with kids.

I have always wanted to take that drive... minus the throw-up of course!

i didn't know we were calling it PCH now, but Susan and I drove from San Fran to Portland on it last year and it was indeed one of the most beautiful drives I've ever taken.

I'd recommend it to everyone.

And, I hope you NEVER get attacked by a shark, Jase. But I am glad you got to see one in captivity...

2010 we should go to the world cup in South Africa and then go swimming with sharks, in one of those metal cages.
