Great White Shark Cage Diving

... country I can’t remember the name of. The shark photographs decorating the waiting area were fantastic and frightening. I think a valid reason for experiencing this was to tell my dad, who is terrified of sharks. This irrational fear made him less invincible and I liked to tease him about it; sometimes, occasionally.
