I went swimming with my cousins last summer. We crossed to another island just to find this beautiful spot of white beach. The current was too strong though and we swam very near the shore as we were all afraid that we will be swept up to the sea. We know how to swim but in that beach no matter how hard to swim the current will overpower you. Not flapping your arms around will cause you to be swept to a far distance in such a very short while. Here's a photo of me and one of them ;O) I am the one on the left.

We were just staying near the beach so we didn't get swept away by the current ;O)

I grew up in a province where our house is located near the sea. I always go swimming almost everyday. You are right, if the current is strong no one can overpower it. By the way nice picture.

The only one who can relate to a post on strong currents is the one who has experienced it ;O) Thanks for posting.
