Jaws Resort Wear has this eye-catching entrance. I didn’t go inside despite their advertised “Live Sharks” sign. Located on Kings Highway (US-17) in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina I’m sure they get a lot of visitors just because of this entrance.

It may be a stretch to put this in the Animal/Fish category but where would you put it? We were in Santa Monica while visiting Julia and Dan who were living in Eagle Rock, an area in Los Angeles. One day we visited Santa Monica, my how it has changed from my visits in the ’90’s. Less local and more national chain stores. Shouldn’t have been surprised but I was and disappointed for some reason. Anyway we were walking along Ocean Avenue and ran across this Big Scallop sculpture. I believe it was next to the Chez Jay restaurant. Nice find.

While visiting Julia and Dan in LA during Spring Break we took a drive up to Santa Barbara to do some wine tasting and enjoy the city. While wandering about near the Visitors Center I spotted this Big Seahorse, the first one for me, and I’ve been at this for quite some time.

Near by the Seahorse pictured just above we found this fish. Actually it’s not just any fish, it’s a sculpture by Matthew McAvene named “The Data Fish.” Too good to pass up.

The Lighthouse Tabernacle Church around the corner at 98th and Keystone has a fish fry during Lent. I don’t remember one in July, however it did provide an opportunity for a Big Picture. I spotted these Big Fish yesterday and had to roll by this morning on the way to the farmer’s market to make sure I got this image before the fish were gone.

5th and Vine is “The Corner” in Cincinnati – Fountain Square on one corner, Tiffany’s on another, Brazillian Steak House and Morton’s on the third and then McCormick & Schmidt’s on the last. This Big Fish advertises M&S’s fish and steak menu. I’ve eaten at a few of their other locations and can attest that the experience is wonderful. We left Cincinnati late afternoon, way too early to have dinner, darn!

Not learning my lesson escaping from the octopus I immediately nearly fell victim to this Big Shark. He was ready to chomp down on my leg as you can see here. Fortunately Chief Brody, Professor Hooper and Quint were vacationing in Pigeon Forge and saved me from this Big White. Some set of jaws, (get it?)
Here’s another found image from our trip to Florida for Ernie and Sally’s wedding in April, 2011. We were traveling on West New Haven Avenue in West Melbourne when we spotted this Marlin on the front of Strike Zone Fishing. We stopped and visited. They have over 10,000 Fish, Hunt and Paddle products for sale. The store is clean and well ordered. If you like fishing you have to stop by, just look for the Big Marlin out front.
“The Great Rainbow Trout” is the name of this sculpture located in front of the Joy of Life art gallery in Douglas, MI. The Saugatuck/Douglas area is an artsy resort area on the Lake Michigan shore just south of Holland. Great place for a get-away any time although I suspect summer and Christmas are the high seasons.
