It's July and you know what that means! Shark week is coming on the Discovery Channel starting Sunday. Did you know that at the Texas State Aquarium, in Corpus Christi, Texas you can now swim with the sharks?
Are you moving to Texas soon? Have you been thinking about it? I'll be the first to stand up and shout that I love my state! Texas is the greatest state in the Union, of that, I have no doubt. There can be challenges living here though, for instance, there are a lot of critters that will try to kill you and then consume you here.
Had a chance to take a week and go visit friends in Florida. We stayed at a house on St. George Island with the Apalachicola Bay on one side of us and the Gulf on the other. I didn't know it when I went down, but we were going shark fishing!
Surfing champ Karina Petroni recently took a swim with a Shiver of Caribbean Reef sharks in the Bahamas. That's what you call a group of sharks, a Shiver. This video will give a lot of folks some shivers...
I am sure we all know lots of people that make the gulf shore for vacation season, and we all know at least a few that head to Destin Florida. Check out this shark and how close it came to people enjoying the beach.
If you're just now emerging from a deep slumber and have no idea what's going on in the world, here's an FYI: one of the greatest weeks of the year is upon us. (Cue the 'Jaws' theme song.) Happy Shark Week, shark fans!
Taking a beach vacation anytime soon, be careful of sharks! You know I love the beach, the sun, sand, and surf. There's nothing quite so surreal. But you know every time that I've been I can't but help think of the movie "Jaws." That movie made a lot of Americans squeamish to set foot in an ocean for the fear of sharks.
