Today marks the beginning of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel of Foxtel. Basically it’s a celebration of sharks. There are documentaries on sharks, first hand stories from victims and of course lots of information from experts.
There is even a competition to win a dive with sharks at Sydney Aquarium, though that’s one competition I won’t be entering. Sure they are well fed there but having watched Shark Week last year I know sharks are not totally predictable.
The food is well presented. My daughter’s boyfriend carved the watermelon shark , it’s too good to eat! The cake was baked by my daughter in an oven that stopped working 10 minutes before the cake time was reached. The oven barely gets a workout as baking isn’t my forte. I’m amazed that it actually broke, obviously we eat too many oven fries ha ha !
Last year our venue for Shark Week was Hamilton Island. This year it’s the family room. The view isn’t so good from the window but the tv is much bigger so the sharks look more authentic. The drinking game remains the same though. I realised my daughter and her friends are real grown ups now as they said ‘just little sips, not gulps’ and consequently the champagne bottle is having a long life.
This is really a cult following. Are you watching Shark Week?
