Sydney has its share of ocean baths. These are essentially public saltwater swimming pools that are right on the shoreline and fill with the tide. Sometimes with a particularly high tide or a good swell these public baths might end up with a few fish and the odd dolphin and maybe even a shark.
The Cronulla baths had never had a shark until this morning. They had a few dolphins over the years but never a shark. The interesting twist, or perhaps irony, here is that the local rugby league team is known as the Cronulla Sharks. So, it is pretty apt that a shark end up in the Cronulla baths.
The shark was finally caught and released back into the ocean at about 10.30 and the sight was an amazing one for all who were able to witness it.
The wonders of the world where nature meets human development.
