On a grey and cloudy day the boat passes on by. there is a gathering crowd as the boats pass through the passage way. the old timer begins to remember his time as a fisherman.he watches as the sharks begin to circle the sinking vessel. he jumps up with a fright, and he takes off running as the boat sinks behind him. he arrives homexand sleeps peacefully knowing he is not surrounded by sharks. later that year, the old timer gets a nobel prize for his story of his harrowing tale as he fought off the sharks. 5 centuries later, a small dog relieves himself on the fossilized old timer.
