Old Man and the Sea

One of my favorite Hemingway books is The Old Man and the Sea.  So when I saw this old salt fishing from the jetty at Haven Beach, I had to snap some photos.  Right after these photos were taken, he caught a small sand shark.  I'm not sure why I didn't think to take photos of the shark, or or the man letting the Brat Child touch he shark or of the shark slowly swimming away.  But I'm glad I got the couple of shots I did.

On a side note, while talking about fishing and sand sharks, the fisherman informed me that the shark he caught while at the beach that day was the 12th one that week.  Great...


  1. I could have helped him catch 100... I have been known to catch 12 in a day.. all I got to do is put my toes in the water.. don't ask why I don't know just happens.

  2. I'm going fishing this weekend with any luck, and if I reel in a shark I'll be sure to take a picture.

    After I stop screaming.

    LOVE these shots.

  3. CBW- did you hear about the 8ft Bull Shark in the Potomac... don't catch one of those.
    Re- Your toes attrack sharks? I think catching them is fun, but perhaps not at the beach where I'm swimming.
