We were waist-deep in the Atlantic when my wife and I saw a fin about 20 yards away. It looked small. “Stingray” someone said, but stingrays don’t have dorsal fins. I know there are bluefish here which are plentiful, and they have a mouthful of teeth. I figured it was too small a fin for a shark, but then what about a baby shark?
All day, people claimed to see fins and think they were dolphins. But dolphins have to come to the surface to breathe, and this fish didn’t.
As I was thinking about it, I found myself standing on the beach.
