Our friendly shark

Last night Carol was swimming behind the boat and found this little critter.  Don’t worry, they normally don’t eat humans.  Carol took this swimming just aft of our deck while this little guy was just 10 feet under the boat.   He shows up every evening to shade under our hull.

I knew Carol was fearless, but!!!!!!!

    It is not a baby shark, but a compatable fish and they are singing Kum-bi-a! In the Land and Sea Park the sharks seemed to have other fish swim with them. This was a very safe place to check out the fish!

    Hello Neal. Actually, it’s called a nurse shark. The fish was a feeder fish that tends to hang out with the nurse shark. It was about 5 feet long. Tonight there was a 4 foot Barracuda just aft of our deck. I tried to entice it with a chunk of salami, but I guess he was too smart for me!

    We hope all is well with you!
