Dangerous Waters 19 7, 10:58pm

Every child in Denmark knows the basic swimming rules - learn to swim (duh), never go in the water alone, and never go beyond your navel.
I failed to follow those rules once in my life, and got caught bathing alone in a very strong undercurrent, fearing at one point that I wouldn't make it back to shore.

The sea is beautiful, but it's also as deadly as a predator.
