This is a picture of a Caribbean reef shark.
I am afraid of nothing…..except swimming in the ocean with hungry sharks.
My husband said, “Come on, it’ll be fun!
I asked the person who ran the boat if anyone had been bit in the past 6 months. He said, “Nope, not that I’m aware of. I’ve only been here 3 months.”
I did a nervous chuckle.
I noticed that many of the other snorkelers were getting into the water. Some of them were children.
“If they can do it, I can do it.” I put my gear on, wiped my sweaty palms on my bathing suit and gingerly got into the abyss, the deep beyond. Using my flip camera, I breath heavily through my snorkel as I looked down. There were snorkelers to my left and right holding onto a rope.
The sharks kept getting closer and closer to me. The instructor said they fed them 1/2 hour prior to us arriving. I just had to have faith in what he said.
So….I did it and I was so proud of myself!
What have you done that you thought you could never do?
