Today we are participating in the shark week scavenger hunt. There are ten different sharks and our job is to follow the clues and find the fins that have been hidden in the park. Since this might be a taxing exercise (mainly to me) we will do it in two parts. Next week will finish the hunt.
We are being catered brunch by June’s All Day in Austin. Our entertainment (Yes I finally went to Firefox as my browser and can load YouTube videos) is DiDO.

There is number one.
There’s the dog park and certainly a place for animals that bark.
And the number two fin.
Black Tip Reef Sharks have distinctive black tips on their fins. Those fins help them to steer, maneuver and accelerate in the water. These shy sharks are timid around other predators & prefer to stay within a home range of approximately 1/4 mile.
Clue: Find the BLACK TIP REEF SHARK fin near “home base”.
There is home base at the ball diamond
Here is the number three fin.
Bullhead Sharks are relatively small bottom feeders who live in tropical and sub-tropical waters. They move through the water with a clumsy wiggle. You can often see these sharks “walking” along the seafloor looking for their next meal.
Clue: Find the BULLHEAD SHARK fin near this “walking” location. (Take the sidewalk path between Upper and Lower Level)
Here’s a sidewalk.
The number four fin.
Hammerhead Sharks are known for their wide-set eyes located on their hammer-shaped head. They also have special sensors across their heads that detect electrical signals of other living creature’s bodies. They swim in schools during the day but prefer to swim solo at night.
Clue: Find the HAMMERHEAD SHARK fin near this “electric” location. (Lower Level near the picnic area and flag pole)
Here is a picnic area and flag pole and electric plugs.
Number five fin.
I hope you enjoyed the hunt today. Don’t forget to come back next week for the conclusion. In the meantime relax and have more food and listen to DiDo.
