Distance 14.6 miles
Purpose. To the beach.
Sue and I had just agreed to ride to the beach when the phone rang. It was an automated emergency call from the town. This was was warning of a shark sighting. It was and unconfirmed shark sighting which to me translates into no one really saw a shark but they saw something and said it's a shark. My educated guess is that it was a large clump of seaweed that is predominant when the tide changes. The seaweed can amass into a very large shark like clump. It happens all the time.
It's just about 5 miles to the causeway road and another mile and a half to the beach. When we got there I sat around for a while before deciding it was too nice not to take a dip. Once I went in and was not eaten by a great white shark other followed. I felt like the guy who starts a fight in a bar then crawl out and leaves.
