Great White Sharks
This isn't a picture of where we were yesterday because the pics are still on the camera, but it's a favourite beach of mine on the Helford.
As I write I am sitting out looking at a massive white shark. It's true - Great White Sharks are alive in Cornwall - I have proof. This one is 22 foot long and lies on the terrace of our upstairs tenants, with the the remains of a person hanging out of its mouth.
It's been lovingly constructed, over the past few days, out of plastic hoops, pond lining and cardboard for the carnival which is tonight, to mark the start of Falmouth Week. This afternoon it will be carried down to the Star and Garter (for it's a thirsty shark) before making its way to Kimberley Park for the carnival parade. As we are both utterly shattered, I think we'll have to have a rest before such excitement.
When I've uncovered the camera (which is lurking somewhere, underneath barbecue Stuff), I will take a picture. Sharky's called Eric, by the way.
