A message about ocean safety:
As the lifeguards like to say, if in doubt, don't go out. And speaking of lifeguards, it's always good to consult a lifeguard about ocean conditions before entering the ocean. Our ocean changes daily. That beautiful, placid lake you might remember from a summer vacation years ago could be a big wave surfer's dream come true during a different time of year. Here are some basic safety tips to keep in mind:
||Swim at lifeguarded beaches only.
||Spend a minimum of twenty minutes observing ocean conditions before hitting the water. Waves come in sets, and the ocean may appear calm between sets of waves.
||Be observant of wet rocks. They are an indication of how far the water may run up on the beach.
||Do not fight a rip current, if you get caught in one. Go with it. Wait for the current to dissipate; then, swim back to shore.
||Watch river mouths and stream openings for strong currents.
||Use the buddy systems. Do not swim alone.
