Ages ago, I had occasion (privileges of a job) to walk on the service path of an electric power plant intake channel ... all the way out to the edge of the coral reef surrounding the island.
I was standing on land a coupla meters above sea level and, with a typhoon just a day or two passed, the spray from the waves flew all over the place ... landing, from time to time, behind me.
I looked back, and noticed my two companions standing way
behind me. I suggested that they move up by me to get a better look, and they replied "Nah, that's okay, we know the ocean a little too well".
That all came back to me when I noticed these folks waltzing out onto a narrow pier in strong surf.
Obviously, they did not have Mike & Sue to talk some sense into them.
