Just down the dock from where we tied up our dingy was a fisherman cleaning his days catch. As he gutted each fish he tossed the waste to the schooling nurse sharks. Some of which were nearly six feet in length. These sharks moved with grace and caution around each other showing none of the feeding frenzy we so often hear about. Stevie and Ben were very much interested in these animals. We were able to get quite close to the sharks without getting into the water with them. Yes, fortunately the kids did manage to come home with all their limbs still attached. It really was a great experience even if the familiar music from Jaws played in the back of my mind the rest of the afternoon.
