I am so glad that you are ok. I was on the beach making sandcastles with my kids when I saw some men holding you up at the edge of the water. There appeared to be enough help so I stayed back. So glad you are ok. I did not know what happened. The water was rough but I really did not think it was any rougher or the undertows any stronger than times I have been in the water at St. Augustine, Cocoa Beach or Daytona where they have life guards. But I did check the warnings every day and told my kids and wife to stay out of the deep water and away from the ends of the sand bar. I'm no expert on any of this but I know it is dangerous. I had a close call at Jekyll Island, Georgia as a teenager.
We love OIB.
I am so glad you shared your story too. I am having my kids read this so they realize Dad wasn't just be over cautious that day.
Most of all I am glad that God took care of you, your son, the rescuers and my family (they were in the water near you).
