    I was in the HZ and walked the beach from Dreams to Gran Caribe today. I could seriously count the amount of ppl in the Ocean on both hands. The odds were very very slim, but if it's true, I am shocked. And today was the first day since Monday that they allowed ppl to go in... and most resorts seemed to have kept the ban in place. Again, I am shocked since I was there from noon to 3:30.

    There's defiantly not anything in the news about it. It was on 105.1 at 8PM.

    Seems like baiting to me (no pun intended).. the "Mexican Media" didn't blame the attack on the lady that was bitten they simply reported an opinion (God forbid).. and keep in mind I'm the last person to defend Mexican media's garbage since I know from experience that 99% of it is total crapolie... but the Canadian press picking up on and trying to make something out of local press reports (to start a fight and increase anti-Mexican sentiment) speaks to their anti-Mexico agenda IMHO. I wasn't there nor do I really give a hoot what any "witnesses" or "experts" have to say, but I think everyone will agree it's and incredibly extraordinary thing that happened, and hopefully the lady involved will be able to make a full recovery. It won't stop me from getting in the water for one millisecond as I'm smart enough to realize if I arrived at the beach without crashing the most dangerous part of my journey is probably over. People should be a lot more worried about a sudden heart attack or stroke than any sharks...

    The pictures were in the local Cancun newspaper today (front page). It is amazing how big of a chuck of her leg is missing. Looks like most of the thigh is gone. Hard to imagine what happened to the lady until you see the pictures.

    Saw that pic first thing this morning and it has stuck with me all day. Incredible! At least she's got a great attitude and a sense of humour. Hope she heals quickly and gets back to her kids!

    More on the shark attack, this from the woman attacked and her hometown newspaper, the Orangeville Banner:

    Bitten by a shark earlier this week, an Orangeville nurse is “recovering well” and eager to get home from Mexico.

    “It could have been way worse, so I’m glad with what I’ve got,” said a jovial sounding Nicole Moore (her name was previously reported in error as Nicole Ross) from her hospital bed in Cancun. “Everyone in Mexico has been great and everyone in Canada supportive and wonderful. I’m just waiting to get home.”
