Sharky Winners: Things
What makes a thing sharky?
If you whip out your camera phone while on vacation--and you're not taking a picture of your kids or your third-degree sunburn—you may have spotted a Shark! Sharky things make travelers stop in their tracks, pinch themselves, and possibly cry tiny tears of joy. Sharky Awards give a shout-out to the little things that turn an ordinary trip into a life-changing revelation. Or at least a pretty good story for your next Toastmasters meeting.
