We’re gonna need a bigger boat

Have been taking it easy since last weds as I did this.

It’s still red but less swollen

But yesterday I thought let’s go – tide was out around 4 and the blazing sun buggered off (I prefer to be cool, sun is not really my friend)

So when did 6 miles become a “short” run for me. This has happened really without me noticing. It used to be 2-3 but now I don’t even consider stopping at the beach and always go further. It’s lucky as today it took me towards Witches Point. In a cave near the waterfall I spotted something bright red. I’m like a magpie when it comes to pretty colours and thusly distracted off I went to investigate.

The red? Well that was a boring traffic bollard thingy but what’s this I spy …..

SHARK! Still inflated too. About 5 foot long and as if it had swum there.
What the hell do you do with a 5ft inflatable shark apart from photograph it. Well what you do is to spend ages learning how to deflate it and then run home carrying it in your beachcombing paws.  I have long since to ignore the stares of people on the beach (MY beach you tripper types) as I hurtle (cough cough) past holding my latest bit of booty.

So now I have a a deflated inflatable shark too. Not sure what I shall do with it but I will think of something I’m sure!

Sadly I didn’t have my proper camera as I can’t find my flipbelt but I took this dodgy photo for you scenery types

Cloudy, moody and slightly out of focus

    1. Calm down – it’s all in your head :p As for the toe I think I broke it running last weds =( Warning may just be bruising but taking an age to go


  2. Can’t bel I eve that you ran on that toe! But you did! Hard ass! No one is going to tackle a man like you with a shark!


  3. Very weirdly I just read your post whilst nursing a pint in the pub. The pub is called the Robert Shaw. Robert Shaw is the actor who plays Quinn in Jaws (he was born in my town) and it’s him that Brody says the ‘bigger boat’ line to. Great post btw!
