1. Bad day a Newcomb Hollow.

The guy was in tough shape when responders arrived, both legs were badly damaged. The nearest hospital was at least 45 miles away.

Sad indeed.

2. Yup! Saw the many different responder vehicles on my way to Truro

The seal population has grown out of control. They swim very close to shore and the sharks follow. This is likely to become more common. I wonder if there is any way to decrease the population through birth control of sorts.
