There have been some unusual visitors to San Francisco in the last few months. Last autumn, for the first time ever, a Great White shark was recorded attacking a seal. It’s one thing to know, logically, that these sharks swim around the bay, but it’s quite another to have visual evidence of it. Fortunately, I read a reassuring article that said the chances of a swimmer being attacked by a shark are 1 in 738 million beach visits.
Some other, gentler, visitors have arrived in the last couple of weeks. Humpback whales have followed food into the bay, to the surprise of many a local kite surfer. Max – who has The Best Commute Ever – was lucky enough to see a whale breach while on the ferry to school this week.
