    What a thoughtful, comprehensive article to combat the hysteria of Shark Week.
    I especially appreciated the comment on watching for diving seabirds; on of the best indicators on Amelia Island with the sandbar so close to shore!

    Its funny how a television show can wreak havic in your mind when you go into the ocean. I found myself thinking of the same thing when I went surfing a few days ago. The only problem that I see with striking a shark in the nose or near the eyes is, you have to put your hand near its mouth! Although it is a life saving attempt, I'm sure that I would try it if found in that situation, but there again, mind over matter still prevails!
