When I read this post on the Seabeck Haiku Getaway Facebook page dated February 3 2017, I thought it was a joke.

Sharks… in the lagoon?!

When I arrived at Seabeck Conference Centre, someone confirmed they were, indeed, mud sharks in the lagoon.

One morning, I headed for the lagoon. And guess what I saw….

A V shape… and a fin sticking out of the water!!!

I walked on the dock and the shark circled back because it was low tide and there was nowhere else to go.

Turns out there were two sharks, swimming side by side.

I took multiple photos (and a video) before they swam away.

The mud sharks are about 1 meter long, but they do look like real shark. It was very impressive.
