How to be Safe from Scary Things in the Ocean

I love serendipity (and dumb luck). Through one of those long, involved stories that would make your eyes roll, I have a real treat to share with you. David McRee is an author and Florida Beaches travel writer. On his website,, you can find all sorts of great information about beaches. He is biased towards Gulf beaches, but he treats us on the Atlantic side fairly too! His book, Gulf Beach Guide, looks like a "must have" for beach lovers. The Beach Books page on his website lists books of authors we know and love, including Witheringtons and Cathy Katz. But the really wonderful part of this website is a FREE, downloadable e-book called How to Be Safe From Sharks, Jellyfish, Stingrays, Rip Currents and other Scary Things on Florida Beaches and Coastal Waters. This little gem is 67 pages of practical information written by somebody that knows what he's talking about. It's in .pdf format and requires less than one megabyte of space, and you will love the clear, concise writing style.

What a find - almost as good as a Mary's Bean!
