"SHARKS IN THE RUNWAY" BY CAPTAIN PAUL J. HARDING



Diver, pilot and owner/operator of Safari Seaplanes, Captain Paul J. Harding’s book "Sharks in the Runway: A Seaplane Pilot's Fifty-Year Journey Through Bahamian Times!" looks like a fascinating read!


This reminds me of the time I worked for a construction engineer on downtown Bay Street, Nassau. Once a week I had to walk over to the British Colonial Hotel, pull up my trousers and wade out in the clear blue water to a seaplane that landed just offshore. The pilot flew in once a week to pick up the payroll for staff on Lee Stocking Island. It was my job to make sure I delivered the money to him on time!

CALLING ALL ANIMAL LOVERS!

For all of you animal lovers, there’s a little dog in my novel “Love at Sunset”! - Excerpt: “He took Snoopy for a quick walk in the wind and rain, made sure the dog had water and left a window slightly open, so his pet had enough air. The hurricane shutters would keep out any gusts of wind. Snoopy whimpered a little as Ian closed the doggy hatch and made preparations to leave. The dog lay in his basket, nose on paws, looking up at his master with worried eyes. His ears twitched at the increasing noise of the wind outside. ‘I’ll be back soon,’ Ian reassured his pet before he left."
