So, we're snorkeling along the shore in shallow water, with me ahead of husband, just admiring all the fish. Looked down and all of a sudden, there he was, just floating about 3 feet below me. I swear he was looking up at me and looked much bigger than 6 ft. Staying calm and still was very hard, but I just slowly pushed away, then tried to signal husband to go around. He spotted Charley like I had, so it all ended well. Without the prior warning, I don't know that we would have reacted as calmly as we did.
Cruising since 1977.
