Dangers in our waters

Postby Troppo » Tue Sep 01, 2015 1:03 pm

I don't go swimming in any of the waters I normally boat in.

Not only is there crocs. I had been rowing along the shore and was getting tired so continued with the outboard and just around the corner . . . croc was longer than my tender.

But there are blue bottles on our beaches. I read they can give a nasty sting.

Safer to stay out of the water.
