Here’s where a rip current carved out a canyon in Naples Beach,
Or presumably so.
While I myself have never been caught up in such a current,
I did once lose grip of an inflatable “smiley face” beach ball that – in the moment that I did – drifted just a foot or two out of reach. My initial attempts to reclaim it with a few lazy lunges rapidly evolved into an “all out” free-style as fast as I could go …
Defeatedly I watched the current and wind ride it out to a speck on the horizon.
As bad as I felt about the lose,
Being back on shore – as opposed to being that ball – brought a “smile” of relief to my face.
