The Shark Tooth Capital of the World

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever even consider that Marilyn and I, with our dogs, would visit the shark tooth capital of planet earth. But we did. We talked to shark tooth hunters, we watched people dig for them and we saw the shark tooth necklace sellers in action.

I feel like we did this for all of us: we can say we’ve been here and you can say you actually know someone who has.

probably a hundred dogs, all playing,

Honestly, the beaches in this area south of Venice are famous for pre-historic shark teeth washing up on shore.

We are back at the dog and shark tooth beach, Brohard Paw Park. This time it’s busy with a few tooth hunters and  hundreds of people, their kids and their dogs here to enjoy the dog beach. This place is probably one of the most friendly places we’ve enjoyed  in our travels.  Dog lovers from all over just like us all trade stories about our favorite four legged friends.  While here we met pet owners from all over the U.S.A and many from eastern Canada as well.

As we walk the beach, we come to signs establishing the end of the dog’s beach and the beginning of “no dogs” beach.  While there are the afore mentioned crowd behind us there is almost no one ahead on the “people only” portion.

the dog park is right next to the Venice airport. See the plane coming in to land?
