C'mon, visit.....please! (trying not to sound desperate)
The story behind this pic is er...interesting to say the least.
It was taken at Indian Head on Fraser Island by tourists who were watching the scene from the lookout above the beach. From there they could see the young couple making love in the shallows, then they saw the huge shark come in out of the darkness. They shouted an unheard warning until they could bare it no longer and had to leave lest they see the couple devoured before their eyes...
Apparently the sight of humans 'doing it' was more than the shark could bare as well.
Just a day before this pic was taken a local went for a swim in the same place and was chased back to the beach by (probably) the same shark.
This is the stuff you dont get to see in the tourist adverts.
Thanks to Bronwyn for the picture and the info. (and the wonderful stories about what YOUR kids get up to when they holiday here in OZ. Bronwyn works in a Backpackers Hostel)
