Midcoast, Oregon. If the chilly water along the Oregon coast doesn’t scare you, the signs at the entrances of many of the beaches may. Not only is it great white shark territory, but large logs launch through the waves as well.
Semaphore, South Australia. Of course, this must be Australia and even a beach is a habitat for deadly snakes. YIKES! Of course, it’s worth the risk for the pristine beaches.
I think I would skip both beaches.
I have to admit it was very intimidating. I basically waded up to my ankles at the coast in Oregon. As far as the beach in Australia, you get so used to the idea that deadly creatures are everywhere that you just try to find you denial happy place! Thanks for the comment, Debra!
What, no sharks! Too bad something so beautiful is hazardous to your health.
Basically, I think they don’t post “sharks” because it’s a given off the Oregon coast, which is a haven for Great Whites! Thank you for the comment!
Well as a geographer I should know but when i see water I just can’t help myself, all rational thinking goes by the wayside.
I hear you on disregarding these signs when it comes to water! We used to swim off the beaches off South Australia, which I’m sure you know, is a favorite for great whites — luckily, I never saw one, but we would see the helicopters flying overhead looking to spot “Jaws” and friends.
