I didn't know that Adam. There is a Shark Bay in the State of Western Australia.
Wow! Good to know in case I ever visit.
Very interesting. I love shark !
I'd certainly believe that one. That's as bad as naming a wilderness trail, Grizzlies Last Meal.
lol tourists sure wouldn't want to be shark bait
LOL- Now THAT is funny!
That is a really clever thing to do, when you think about it! (lol) Thanks for the info. Hugs...
A wise choice
Shark bay sounds much better!-Kati
Yeah, I could see how the name Shark Bay might scare people away--especially if tourists are generally looking for a place to swim!
That name would probably make me stay away, unless I wanted to see sharks.
I thought black-tipped sharks were harmless? I doubt I'd take a chance.
Somebody in marketing knew what they were doing.
Well then I hope they had the sense to inform the sharks???Colin
