Yosemite waterfall deaths: 3 hikers swept over falls, presumed dead

Reminded me of my own past failures to take heed – of the posted signs – 11 years ago in Hawaii in Maui when the signs said (something to the effect of) “do not turn your back to the ocean.”

I knew not what it meant. Until later.

But when I did what I read not to do – the undertow (under toad – remember?) GOT ME!

The rest of my story – originally published in my firm’s newsletter – a few days after I got home after spending time in the hospital instead of tanning on the beach back in 2000:

I wrapped up that article – now a post on this site – with:
