Tina Wayt took this photo in 2008 when her daughter attended school in the Land Down Under. “While she was there, we had the pleasure of being invited to join her boyfriend's family at Couran Cove, an island resort off the Gold Coast (no cars allowed).” (Note to readers: Reports suggest that the resort is now closed.) Wayt said they had “an unforgettable time watching Santa arrive on a Jet Ski, elves making mischief and an incredible Christmas brunch on the beach.” That giant Mrs. Claus and elf?

Three women were killed Saturday afternoon in San Dimas when their jet ski crashed into a powerboat, injuring four others, authorities said. The collision between the Sea-Doo watercraft and the boat occurred about 4:30 p.m. in Puddingstone Reservoir at Frank G. Bonelli Regional Park, said Matt Levesque, a Los Angeles County Fire Department inspector. "It was a pretty severe accident in the middle of the water," Levesque said. The three people killed — ages 25, 35 and 60 — were not identified, he said.

Most days, Zapata appears a town unchanged as the four lanes of U.S. Highway 83 tick past the Lone Star Western Store, Robert's Fish N' Tackle and Tacos Tio Beto before running into the south Texas scrub where fishing camps emerge at the end of dirt and gravel roads. It is a place where men are divided between Stetsons and sweat-stained ball caps. Where old tales of border banditry are told alongside those of roughnecks drawn here for the natural-gas boom on ranchland studded with mesquite and Mexican olive trees.

John Morgan was doing a little surfing at Byron Bay on Australia's New South Wales coast over the weekend when it happened. "I had just come off a wave," the 51-year-old surf shop manager told the Northern Star newspaper, "when I saw a large swirl of water. I was then suddenly hauled backward. It felt like I was riding behind a powerful Jet Ski." It wasn't a Jet Ski; it was a shark. The animal had become entangled in the leg rope of the surfboard, and Morgan was hauled for about 150 yards before the shark freed itself.
