Take care when swimming !

The riptides can be extremely dangerous. Be careful swimming and check out the weather and beach tides to plan accordingly. Inform everyone in your group the following Do not swim toward shore. You will be fighting the current, and you will lose. Swim parallel to shore, across the current. Generally speaking, a riptide is less than 100 ft. wide, so swimming beyond it should not be too difficult. If you cannot swim out of the riptide, float on your back and allow the riptide to take you away from shore until you are beyond the pull of the current.

We have a gate at the top of each of the sets of stairs

This can keep little ones safe! Also, the black out drapes are good to have in the master bedroom and guest room (with ensuite), however don't tug too hard, they should slide easily to open and close. Also, keep little ones from tugging on them and pulling them down (will damage the walls).
