    It's not a question of "if". But when and where!

    I promise to be thankful for every day I get on the pier.

    Now, if I can just get a few.
    People are shocked to see sharks in the water around here.

    If you see natural water taste it. If it's salty it has sharks in it. If it's fresh it has alligators in it. If it's brackish it has both.

    BTW, the water around here contains Vibrio vulnificus, aka "flesh eating bacteria," you might oughtn't taste it.

    The full drone footage video of Bob Hall Pier (post "Hannah") is amazing.
    Kudos to my dear friend Dere, who spent much of her life in that area and sent me the link to share...
