Some of our greatest moments in life are the ones that we don't think about, we just react.
That's what happened Sunday when I saw a younger woman get washed off the rocks inside of the Arch next to the blowhole at Pearl Street Beach. I had seen it happen before but never like this. It was never a question of whether to go or not.
I grew up on that beach with a long list of great watermen and lifeguards, who I always wanted to emulate. I have a lot of admiration for those who put their lives on the line every day; they are the real heroes and those who taught me the ways of the beach.
