... times I ventured into the shark-infested ocean in Perth, and I agree that it hurts like hell (although still better than getting munched by a shark)! We still had a great day out on the water and kayaked all over the place. In the evening we sat and enjoyed another stunning sunset while listening to Jimmy Buffet (essential Florida music when camping in the Keys) and watching a lightning storm out over the ocean in the distance.
