Elijah – thank goodness right! Have always had a very healthy respect for water although I consider myself a good swimmer. For all the years I spent competing in swimming pools from a young age, the power of the oceans and rivers still leaves me in awe and feeling small.
Yes, it is a good theory to keep your head in an emergency. And, one always like to think you can handle certain things -‘but of course’. One time I was so shocked by something happening I could swear I was screaming my head off very loudly and why did nobody hear? Turns out I was screaming loudly in my head but the voice box was very mute! When adrenalin gets going in the body it is something else.
I’m glad you are okay. Thanks for sharing that. Your lessons for others from it are great. Hope they are remembered.
