Pretty cool but this scares the life out of me. I love swimming in the ocean but I've always got that fear in the back of my head about something lurking in the deep. lol :P

Looks like Mary Lee invited a friend down from Cape Cod to play off the coast of Savannah ...

They are following the Right whales to the calving grounds off of St. Simon Island. We had a pod of whales off the coast this weekend.

I hope no knucklehead fishermen are going to try and catch either of these great whites.

Default Another Reason

Another reason for me to stick with swimming pools, or go only so far in oceans; ankles deep, maybe knees but that's about IT!! I made the right decision to not swim with the unfamiliar. My place is on land, the water especially the ocean is not my habitat, I respect these animals.

You're more likely to get 'bitten' by a bull shark in knee/waist deep water than eaten by a great white offshore somewhere.

Sharks don't target people, they mearly taste test (and the liklihood of that ever happening is miniscule) and when they realize you're not a fish, seal, etc, they let go. That's why people are bitten but not eaten.

If you feel there's a chance you could get bitten by a shark, you should also be playing the lottery on a regular basis.
