Escapism of the bookish sort.
And since there were a couple shark attacks at NY beaches this week, makes me even less likely to get in the water!
Yikes- I think I'd stay away too!!
Um, yes. As fast as I can paddle!~Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum
Crazy scary actually. I've never seen a large shark IRL in the wild, only at aquariums. Strange because we used to go deep sea fishing quite a bit in the 80s, but that was East Coast. I think now that the water is warming up because of climate change they might be coming in closer to shore. 😱
That may be true.
I'm so fascinated with sharks! I've been watching a great series called When Sharks Attack on Nat Geo Wild this week and it reminds me why I only ever swim in swimming pools!
That sounds awesome. and of course Shark Week- and MEG is coming!!!
The title alone is off-putting. Sharks & People... two things that should not mix. Ha.
Exactly. The two do NOT mix!!!
How would you like to turn around and see THAT behind you???
Oh my! I can’t wait to see The Meg...
I need the MEG!!
Oh, wow! SCARY!!Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
Right? If I turned around and saw that I'd probably fall out...
Were you hearing in your head the Jaw's theme when you posted this - I couldn't help myself!Lynn :D
No, but totally appropriate!!
DO NOT WANT! (But it's pretty cool, actually.)
It is cool, as long as I'm not there and he got away... :)
That is a pretty freaky picture. I would be paddling faster.
I would be in the next county...
Holy hell, this is terrifying. In 2010 I took my grandma to Hawaii and we went swimming with sharks. And by 'we' I mean me, and by 'swimming with sharks' I mean I was in a cage attached to the boat. It was mainly Galapagos and Sandbar sharks, but we were still told to not put our hands or feet on/outside the cage. But, being the rebel that I am, I could not resist reaching out and touching one as it swam by. Such an amazing experience, and I still have ten toes, eight fingers, and two thumbs!
Is it awful that I am morbidly curious about this? Though it IS nonfiction (I googled, of course), it also includes many pictures of... well Idk if it is violent shark attacks but I feel like it should be. And then some person petting a shark or something insane. It also makes you think... who the hell takes enough pictures of sharks to make a whole book!?!?
Speaking of... I'm kinda interested in watching the shark film coming out next month, The Meg
That looks absolutely terrifying, especially land is just out of reach! I'd be paddling for my life!
This is why I don't go in the ocean! When I was a kid I was scared of going into the "dark parts" aka shadows in the pool because I thought sharks could get me there. 😂
Well that would be terrifying.
