Surviving the Sharks

Randy Harwood Photography


Excerpt from book, “Drifting On A Headwind” by Jim Harlan:

Though I had learned not to fear sharks, these predatory specimens terrified me. The sharks opted to approach from my blindside, but a kick to their heads would send them darting into the blue. I was drawing a crowd when I heard the ruckus coming out of the sun. Thirty or forty of them approaching from all directions sent the sharks deep. Protecting me like one of their own, the dolphins chased the sharks even deeper. I was unsure if this attack was conducted on my behalf or was just part of an ongoing open ocean war. I knew that surviving the night would be a miracle.”
