An article on SFGate reminded me that we live right in the center of the Red Triangle, a region off the coast of California that is home to a large population of marine wildlife. Sea Lions, Harbor Seals, Sea Otters, Elephant Seals, and of course their mortal enemy. The Great White. The "Red" in Red Triangle stems from the color of the water after a shark has attacked. 
The Farallon Islands in particular, are unique in the size of the Great White population that reside in the waters. Although the sharks migrate South for the winter to mate, many return faithfully to the islands every autumn. 
Wouldn't it be so neat to go cage diving and see a shark up close? When you live in Northern California, it's actually not that difficult. Who's up for the challenge? This girl.
Bring it.
