Playing with Sharks!

Source - and here - and here - click for detail!

Hah - watch this.
And here she is on Shark Reef in all her glorious pinkness, a couple of days later - watch in 1080 and full screen.
Of course she did stand out like a sore thumb. 
And of course she did catch the attention of our big, bold and very dominant Shark Icon Tip. Talk about being given a haircut - and then watch how her nephew Jono barely avoided smacking her with his heavy video housing on top of it! 
But of course Valerie would have it no other way!

Anyway, it has been loads of fun.
Valerie, and Ron have been our best friends literally forever, and every visit is always a great joy and an honor, too - and having been chosen to be featured in her movie, doubly so.
And now the whole big shebang has been completed - and apparently it is great, to the point that is has been selected to screen at the prestigious Sundance Festival. Considering the mess in the USA, I expect the event to be largely virtual, and that one will be able to watch the movie online, possibly even outside of the US - so there.

And if not, make sure you don't miss it.
Valerie is one of the true diving Legends, and then some - and what makes this movie so unique is that much of her adventurous, passionate and fascinating life has actually happened on camera. And now the public will be able to actually witness it, which could not have come soon enough - especially when compared to the exploits of today's forgettable self promoting Shark charlatans and media whores!
So thank you to Producer Bettina and Director Sally - this is really very much appreciated.

But I'm digressing as always.
Enjoy Valerie's movie!

Bravo Valerie.

Those bulls make the Caribbean bulls look like dogfish. What do you feed them? Spinach laced with steroids?

But a question.
Twice they smacked people with their tails in that short sequence. How often does that happen? The Walker's bulls would never dream of being so impolite to the GPL (Great Pink Lady) and her assistant. Is that simply accidental or is more going on?

Happy New Year JSD!

It's a function of where the bin with the Tuna heads is being positioned - and in that specific instance it was positioned real close, as that's what Valerie likes!

And we actually feed them steroids laced with spinach! :)

Great to see Val still in action. God Bless her. She and Ron were the first to inspire my passion for these awesome creatures.

Greetings to all my friends.

BTW we're still seeing your Shark - bold, beautiful & feisty as always! :)
