    Looks like people are wading out there quite a ways. Is it shallow that far out? I could do that! Just can’t go where I’d get my head under water. Got knocked down by a wave on a beach in Oregon when I was 6 and it screwed up my ears. I have positional vertigo now, and if I end up underwater, I can’t tell which way is up. We were wading in the bay here by us and my daughter wanted me to look into the water to see something. Forgot — since I was obviously already standing up — and stuck my face and ears under water for a peek. I couldn’t stand up! There I was like some bloomin’ ostrich with my head buried in the water and my feet on the ground and I STILL couldn’t tell which way was up! How’s that for lame? If Lord Drollery hadn’t noticed and grabbed hold of the back of my shirt, I would have stood there and drowned. They’d have had a HECK of a time explaining THAT one to the cops! LOL! 😀

      Hi Calen! Yes, it’s shallow for about 100 feet. Plus, generally speaking the sea is calm so I don’t need to watch after the kids when they go swimming. Never heard about your vertigo before, must be scary! Hugs, HC

        Not scary. Just makes me look like I’m three sheets to the wind! Don’t have it all the time. Certain things exacerbate it. Airplane trips, elevators, spinning on an office chair (or a bar stool! 😀 ). The vertigo itself is just an annoyance that crops up now and then. Loss of direction is permanent — and I suspect it doesn’t just happen when my ears are under water if my parallel parking skills are any indication! Hope you’re having a beautiful day (?). Hugs back, kiddo.
