The thing is - I love sharks - but I don't want to be anywhere near a hungry one. I mean it! They might not want to eat me, but hey, even I sometimes eat stuff I don't want when I'm hungry. Stuart's Cove is one of the most famous dive shops - especially for shark diving in the Bahamas. They take the divers out to the feeding spot and explain that the divers must keep their limbs tucked close to their bodies at all times because a shark could mistake an arm for some chum (AARRGH!). Anyway, they descend, kneel at the bottom, and a guy comes down with a box full of chum, and when everyone's ready they open the box and are suddenly surrounded by 40+ sharks! I'm glad it was fun, but I'm seriously in no rush to experience this. Has anyone else done it?
It's FRIDAY! Our first week on the web is coming to a conclusion, and thanks so much for giving us such a warm welcome. I have to be honest about today's photo - I was nowhere in the vicinity. Instead, I was lying in the sun at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas in these really cool cabanas that have plasma tvs, mini bars, private bathrooms, and you can even get a massage. My friend went on the dive, took the picture, and told me all about it. I was a tiny bit jealous, but not enough to jump in with that lot!
Hugs and Fishes!
