Now, It’s the Sharks Turn

If you recall, earlier in the week, I wrote about a dolphin encounter we recently had on our 10-year anniversary trip.


As luck would have it, the day before, I had a bit of a different experience.


It was getting to be around 2 o’clock and the clouds were rolling in.


But that didn’t make it any less hot.


So, before we got dumped on with the rain, I decided to go back out into the water to swim and cool off.


Before long, it was just myself and another dad that happened to be there with his family.


Earlier, we chatted a bit and he seemed like he had a good head on his shoulders.


Anyhow, his two kids, probably 9 and 11 years old, came out to swim with him.


Moments before they came out, I had this eerie feeling that maybe I was near a shark.

I am fascinated by sharks as I am sure most people are.


Well, a few minutes after the guys' kids came out, I decided to call it a day and head in.


As soon as I got in, a lady that was about 50 feet or so further down the beach started yelling to the guy, there is a shark right over there. There’s a shark!


I told the guys wife and then began to wave him in, without yelling what was happening so the kids would stay calm.


He slowly and calmly got the kids to shore and then told me that his daughter had told him she was a fin but he didn’t believe her.


Pretty amazing.


Here’s the thing though: If you choose to swim in the ocean, there are sharks. Odds are, you’ve probably been in the vicinity of one, but had no idea. You can let that thought paralyze you or put you into wonderment.


It correlates to everyday life as well, figure it out.
