  Just How Rough The Sea Can Get
by Nixter01

Please take extra spcial care when swimming. Although the sea looks beautiful and inviting it can also be a hidden dangerzone. Always keep an eye open when on lilos or even if you are on a peddlo, when entering the sea, always look back and find something as a guide like a red flag or a familiar face or structure, this way if you are swimming and DO happen to drift you can focus back onto that object and find your way back safely to your lounger. I found this out when on my lilo, I was just lying there and the next thing I looked up and was half way across the bay! It does'nt usually bother me as I'm a fairly strong swimmer, but even I had to paddle like mad to get back as the currents are EXTREMELY strong, so DON'T get caught out !
