Teaser Tuesday: The Shark Club
As I pulled my snorkeling gear from my bag and fixed the mask over my nose and eyes, a little girl in a yellow sundress - a first grader, I guessed - ran full steam toward the gulls, causing them to lift off and flap away like little ghosts fleeing an exorcism, their squawking carrying down the beach until they circled around and resumed their resting positions.
I turned to look at the girl who had caused the maelstrom. She stared out at the Gulf, hands on her hips, elbows cocked, looking like a four-foot conqueror.
