Safe to go in the water? Meet the newest great white on the Cape

Welcome "Freckles"!  Aww she's so cute...such an endearing name for such an amazing predator! This lovely lady was spotted off the coast of my favorite place on earth, Nauset Beach, in South Orleans.  I've been swimming there since the 80's (back when the only thing that kept us off the beach were the Plovers).  

But don't let a 15 foot Great White Shark ruin your Orleans/Chatham vacation plans...it’s been 80 years since someone in Massachusetts was offed by a shark.

In fact, experts say sharks are actually scared of humans.  Ok if you say so...still I may just stay on the sand with the Plovers. 

Happy summer! 😉
