I don’t know about you, but the first week of August always means one thing. Well two things. One is my Dad’s Birthday (Happy Birthday Daddy!). and TWO, is SHARK WEEK. To say that we have these nights penciled in to be glued to the TV is an understatement. We schedule our entire social calendar around that 9-11pm time slot. One year, we were so inspired by the shark divers in the Bahamas that we booked our own trip to swim with them at the same site the show filmed. Don’t believe me?
Yes. We are crazy.
Last night’s episode was coverage of the Great Whites along Cape Cod. I’ve been to Nauset and Lighthouse Beaches maybe 10,000 times in my life and I cannot say thank you enough to the guys who patrol these waters. It was alarming to see how close these things are swimming up to the beach!
I know I’m not alone in my enthusiasm, so in honor of Shark Week, I’ve rounded up a few items for you to show your shark spirit year round! There is something for everyone, including the gal who has $13,000 to burn on a 3-5 million year old fossilized shark tooth necklace! (is this anyone in real life?!) Well its not me… yet. For now, I’ll just be enjoying my gummy sharks in front of the TV. And tweeting about it.
PS for those of you following along on the regular– the new job is going great! Although it was silly of me to think I’d have time for regular posting as I settle in to a new position. I’ll be in and out for the next few weeks.
