How many are there?
I seem to see reports of people spotting giant sharks in shallow water every week. Is it because more sharks or people are recording it? This time it turned out to be a giant shark, according to whdh.com. I recently wrote about sightings of giant sharks near the Nubble lighthouse and other places in our area. All of these photographs show monolithic sharks in fairly shallow water just offshore.
I will never go into the water again
Al Lane, who caught the shark in video at Marblehead Harbor in Massachusetts on Monday, told whdh.com that he often swims in the harbor with his children and plans to swim in the harbor again. Not me. Never. If I see something more than a foot long, I am OUT of the water. Once my wife and I saw a manta ray in the water while walking along the beach on vacation, and she can confirm: “I CAN WALK ON WATER.” I was scared. I was only ankle-deep, but flew out of there.
Maybe it’s time to get a Sharkbanz bracelet
Last week I wrote about Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg who wore Sharkbanz while surfing. The thought of a giant shark makes me want to buy one of these Sharkbanz for walking along the beach. ONLY ON EARTH, I WANT ONE. This is how I am afraid of things in the water. Not only sharks, I have been known to jump out of my skin if algae touches my feet. My wife grew up in the countryside and she is partial to possums, snakes, beetles, spiders and bats. Nothing really scares her, but I grew up in the city, and the creatures and everything that I do not see in the water seriously turned me to stone. Thank goodness she’s there to catch all the bugs and I can always push her towards the shark if I was in the water I guess. If you are swimming, keep your eyes on these large giant sharks. It looks like we have a lot of observations this year.
