WE do not delete threads randomly.
MOST times a thread closure order comes from the office.
Lots of times, lisa and i feel a thread is not making progress and is becoming problematic.............with that in mind we discuss it and then hit the lock or delete.
Just because it is OLD, means you think it should be closed?

Andrea's right because some people, me for instance, didn't find this forum till this past september. so everything in this forum was new to me though it may be an older date. but for me, it was all new information. if i read just the 2010 info when i came to this forum, i would have missed alot of things that were posted. so thanks for not deleting, lol....
In all my trips I've seen two sharks in Aruba. One was just a brief glimpse of a small fin on the way out to the Antilla on a snorkeling cruise and the other was a 3' (or so) lemon shark off DePalm island. Neither got anywhere close to people.

Priceless, that statement has been going around for quite a while. My mother booked our first trip in January of 1983 and the travel agent at the time told her about the feeding of the sharks on the other side so they didn't come down to the populated beaches. We just accepted it as truth because we didn't know any better....almost like the internet.
feeding of the sharks on the other side so they didn't come down to the populated beaches.
That was the exact point this woman was trying to prove to me. In her mind, there was no way, no how that a shark would EVER venture over to the west coast of the island when the eating was so good on the opposite coast. Sometimes there is just NO explaining to people and they just believe what they want. I am wondering if she did not see some fisherman.
Just thought I would put my 2 cents in since I just about live in the ocean. If you go down by baby beach and walk along the shore, we have seen sharks out there. You have to remember that the ocean is where sharks live. 1 month ago we wanted to get some good pics with our go pro camera so we set up some bait and dove down 80 feet deep and set up the go pro. 6 hours later we went back and got the go pro and looked to see what we got on tape. You guessed it. A shark came in and bumped the bait box and took off. This was a 7 ft shark. I have done alot of deep sea fishing in Aruba and I have caught sharks so believe me, there are sharks in the water but I have never heard of any shark attacks in Aruba. That is more than we can say about Florida. The sharks like the deeper water because its cooler for them.
