*** Matawan Creek,NJ***
It doesn’t matter how much you know because when you travel, you understand that you don’t know much of anything.
This time, my travels took me to MATAWAN CREEK ( Jersey shore ) . At first, when you look at it, it seems like a normal creek but truth is , this was once a place that terrified many people.
In 1916 there were a series of SHARK ATTACKS New Jersey . Fours people were killed and one severely injured. In Matawan Creek a 12 years old and a 24 years old were killed in within an hour from each other.
They never settle on the specie but many says that it was a Great White SHARK.
Those events, inspired Peter Benchley in writing his novel in 1974 : JAWS which became a famous movie.
The most fascinating thing about this Creek is that it is really a peaceful and relaxing place. I sat there for a few admiring the reflection on the sun in the water. It is a perfect place to run away from the everyday life and to relax.
