Sharks up close and personal
16 March 2008 | Union Island
Getting a good look at Nurse sharks. Just down the dock was a fisherman cleaning his days catch. The waste he tossed to the schooling nurse sharks some of which were nearly six feet in length. The sharks moved with grace and caution around each other with none of the feeding frenzy we so often hear about. STephen in particular was facinated by the creatures and leaned over the edge a little too far for Mom and Dad's comfort. Fortunately we were able to keep him from being eaten. All the kids talk about this day as though it were something very special. It was of course!
