I like that because it's probably true!

When we were over there, we anchored off a beach where there were a lot of people. We took the dinghy in and and beached it. The kids, who were pretty young at the time, loved it. It was great for me because so much of the water was so shallow off the beach. No sudden drop offs!

I was in the water, maybe shin deep, with my two youngest when suddenly I heard a man yell, "Shark!" I looked about 200 feet away and saw a small dorsal fin. The water was so clear I could see it easily. It was about a 3-4 foooter. The kids froze then the Bahamian man ran out into the water towards the shark, yelling at it, trying to shoo it away.

Yeah, they are fun!
