I hope your weekend was amazing! Mine was awesome, however, something scary happened while in the ocean at Newport Beach on Sunday! While body-surfing in the waves, I was caught in an intense riptide current!
If you don't know what rip current is, according to Wikipedia, "it is a is one specific kind of water current that can be found near beaches. It is a strong, localized, and rather narrow current of water."
Basically, it means that a very strong current of water pulls you out to sea, and it's impossible to swim against it to get back to the shore. Yes, it is as terrifying as it sounds.
I'm going to be uploading a new VLOG to my YouTube Channel which documents a lot of the events from this past weekend in Orange County, and I'll talk more about this experience!
In the meantime, if you are a swimmer/surfer/ocean/lake enthusiast like I am, be sure to read about how to escape a rip current! (Check out the attached photo here for tips.) Knowing what to do in a rip current can save your life.
Whew, what a crazy weekend. I'm really excited for you to watch my latest video, though! It was a weekend to remember, - even though this scary event occurred! Luckily, all is well, and it was just a scare!
Talk soon, and love you all!!
PS - I posted a new YouTube video on Friday and here in the link! AND, new articles will be uploaded to acting.about.com this week, too! If you have a minute, thank you for checking them out!!
