The only possible danger that shark was in was if some of Mrs. Sticky's culinary delights had slipped over the side. We'd have all been in the paper for inflicting 'raving indigestion' on the poor thing.

You, Clare and that chainsaw, never mind about your ego!

More coverage on Westcountry TV last night, no specific reference to 6 boats harassing a Basking Shark.

Sounds a bit like Bob at the BBQ!

Heah Alice, what's that supposed to mean "culinary delights" and "raving indigestion". Are you trying to suggest I gave you indigestion with my kebabs.....

I felt as rough as rats the following morning, I put it down to those Kebabs. Can't think of anything else it could have been.





Any chance that you two could have a Mr. and Mrs. Sticky Log-on? It get's a bit confusing.

Very cool.

The sharks, I mean; not you harassing boaters.

We supposedly have basking sharks seaonally off the California coast, but I've never seen one (and only personally know of one person who has.)

Just a case of nothing better to do . There is no way we harassed that shark . It never stopped feeding for the whole 10 mins we watched it .

I used to kayak with a marine Biologist from Plymouth Aquaraium and learned a bit about these creatures and spent some time watching them , You don't wan't to upset one in a Kayak . The first thing they do is stop feeding dive and swim away .

Had we been a bunch of divers in ribs we would have been in the water with cameras etc but I expect that would have been viewed as Ok . Not knocking divers or saying its not Ok you understand

I blame Alice , it was her driving again Iam not boating with her again unless we can launch out of site of land

Mrs Sticky here! Do you not think that the large consumption of JD's had a little to do with how rough you felt in the morning, you didn't look too good..... and were rather quiet all day!!
