Stingray Shuffle

We’ve seen lots of sea life here in The Bahamas. Parrot fish, lobsters, turtles, lemon sharks, nurse sharks, and several varieties of rays.

We were dinking around Prime Cay one day and saw so many huge stingrays, some as wide as our dinghy! They’re a bit menacing looking. Not so much their grey smooth bodies, but those stingers on their tails! That’s gotta hurt if it get’s you.

After a while, we decided to take a stroll on the beach. We dropped our dinghy anchor and slowly waded through the knee-high water to the beach.

What’s that? A sand mound with two black rock on either side. Weird. They almost look like eyes. Hey, wait a minute! Those are eyes!!! That stingray buried himself in the sand! Sneaky little critter. And if you weren’t paying attention, you could step right on him, he could get freaked out, and slam you with his stinging tail! That would suck!!

And that, my friends, is why we do the “Stingray Shuffle.”
