Shark! Bring the Ocean to You

Shark! Bring the Ocean to You

If you are looking for some shark fun, you’ve come to the right place, because Blue Water Pool Mosaics has just the thing.

But first, let’s go to the movies. Who doesn’t love the smell of popcorn, the taste of an ice-cold drink, and sinking into a theater recliner for the next two hours while the world goes away? No doubt about it, we love movies.

Why We Love Movies

Maybe you are there for stress relief, drama, a belly laugh, or even candy. No matter why you go to the movies, you can count on one thing: the name Steven Spielberg. At the very mention of this director’s name, you know you are in for a treat. It won’t be just any old flick, either. When Spielberg’s name is in the credits, thrill-seekers know to keep their hands inside the ride.

Who can forget the scene in “Jurassic Park” when the kids are trapped in the kitchen and the velociraptor is tapping its toe? Or when the boys are trying to rescue E.T. while being chased by government agents, and the kids’ bicycles levitate into the air? It’s magic.

Why We Love Sharks

And perhaps it’s too obvious to even mention, but don’t forget the scene in “Jaws” where Chief Brody says, “You’re gonna need a bigger boat,” and subsequently picks up the air tank and launches it into the mouth of a great white shark. “Smile, you —,” he says as he shoots the tank with his rifle, sending the shark into oblivion.

Who would have thought back in 1975 that a film that was labeled as a movie-making disaster would be the one to bring home the bacon?

Between the revenues of the original movie plus the 4 sequels, a cool $800 million later, Spielberg made fools of them all as the world became obsessed with sharks. It’s safe to say he would not need to rent the “Orca” to do his hunting, because he would own his own fleet.

From the moment Jaws chases the boat, ramming and sinking it, to the moment where Quint (the shark hunter) loses his footing and slides into the jaws of the great white, all it took was one note of the theme song to send chills down our spines.

We might add that it made it practically impossible to go back into the water. Even the slightest tickle of seaweed brushing against our leg was cause for thrashing around and a good blood-curdling scream.

There was a time when beachgoers never thought about the fact the waters were home to 5,000-pound killers. But thanks to movies, that’s not the case anymore.

With lengths of up to 20 feet or so, it’s no wonder humans are so fascinated by these sea beasts known to have teeth up to 6.5 inches. How would you like to see one of these slicing through the water in your direction at 35 miles per hour with its dead eyes and wide-open trap?

When you think of it this way, when it comes to swimming pools one size does not fit all. And why would it? The average size of a backyard swimming pool is a little over twice the length of a great white.

To be sure, sharks are big business. From the 180 movies that have kept moviegoers in search of the next big rush to sharkskin suits, shark meat (although it’s legal, it contains high amounts of mercury, making it a non-desirable source for regular consumption), not to mention television series like Swimming with Sharks and Shark Week, it seems sharks are everywhere.

So, yes. We humans are not only fascinated but we are also obsessed with sharks. And why? Because they represent power.

And while they have reputations as eating machines, does that mean you need to become shark bait to swim with the sharks? Perhaps what you need isn’t an ocean to house your shark, but a pool. Or, to be more specific, a mosaic.

Why Pool Art?

It’s long been known that art can take you to places you never thought you could go. Imagine, with just a few simple supplies, you can go on a safari! Or botanical gardens, or even the stars. Not only is art a form of therapy, but it’s also an escape that you create.

But what if you’re not artistic? Welcome to the rest of the world. Most of us are not Picassos. That’s where pool mosaics come in. Colorful and wildly fun, a pool mosaic can bring not only your pool to life but your whole backyard. You dream up the masterpiece, and we’ll make the mosaic.

Why Bring the Ocean to You?

There are countless reasons hitting the beach is the number-one vacation spot, whether it’s sticking your toes in the sand or the tide of clear, cool water. If you are lucky enough to live near a beach, then you already know how uplifting it is to be outside with the sun in your face, or to take a moonlit stroll along the shore.

But what if you don’t? What if the sounds you hear are honking horns and lawnmowers instead of crashing waves? What if the only trip you get to take is the one that happens in your beach read?

There are all kinds of reasons a person cannot travel to the ocean, even though it might be the one thing on his or her bucket list. It could be there’s an elderly family member at home and you are charged with caregiving. Maybe you can’t get away from work, or the timing is off. Perhaps you were planning a trip, but then the pandemic came calling.

Whatever the reason, just as sure as you can be that Steven Spielberg is the deliverer of jaw-dropping, heart-pounding excitement in the movie theater, you can also be assured that Blue Water Pool Mosaics delivers spellbinding mosaic art to your pool. Just because you can’t get to the ocean doesn’t mean the ocean can’t come to you.

Ready to swim in your own shark tank? Give us a call today. Beware, though. When the neighbors get wind of your Blue Water pool mosaic, you’re gonna need a bigger pool.
