For those of you who thought you might want to take up paddle boarding this summer, think again where you plop your board ...The news was pretty straightforward today that a 12-foot Atlantic White Shark was tagged off of North Beach in Chatham yesterday - essential reading for a tourist.
Oh I forgot to tell you that last Sunday a few weekenders were taking the shuttle from Morris Island to North Beach and coasted into a pool of blood and a not so perky abandoned seal along the way. We are talking about a 5 minute boat ride from hither to thro. Luckily they brought along a stash of summer beach reads, but ( excuse me) unannounced to us, we were in the vicinity splashing in the waves.
I did ask myself the honest question...if there were dinosaurs in the water, would I be doing the same pokey backstroke along the shore?
No,no, no we would be at the Museum of Natural History in Brewster pretending we were eaten by a shark.
