Crazy story...my wife and I usually go for a swim in the ocean at least a few times per week. We had a bunch of stuff to do today so we didn't get to the beach until 7:30pm, still plenty of light left as the sun doesn't set until 8:30pm.
We got there and there was a pretty substantial sand bar, we waded out to it so I could do a little body surfing. We were floating on the back side of the sand bar catching some waves when not 10ft away comes a big triangular fin. Now I see dolphins every day and this was no dolphin. The fin had a yellowish hue and we could see about 6" of fin before it went under water. We never saw the back of the shark so I have no idea if it was a big or small shark. But I've caught plenty of sharks and I know a 2-3ft shark has a damn small fin, not much bigger than a large steelhead. So the shark just glides right past us and disappears. Of course we decide this might be a good time to exit the water.
Man I tell you the hundred yards back to the beach was the longest walk I've taken in a while! The worst part was when we had to cross the 1st cut and the water went from wait deep to over my head!
Now I know there are millions of sharks in the water and they probably swim by all the time, but damn it's unsettling when one swims right next to you!
I've scuba dived around sharks before but having them in murky water right next to you is a whole different ball game.
Just thought I'd share this story with you guys. It made for an exciting afternoon!
If all you ever do is all you've ever done, then all you'll ever get is all you ever got.
