Out to sea

posted by Jason Kottke   Nov 13, 2009

I couldn’t resist reading the entire story immediately after reading the synopsis:

Swept out to sea by a riptide, a father and his 12-year-old son struggle to stay alive miles from shore. As night falls, with no rescue imminent, the dad comes to a devastating realization: If they remain together, they’ll drown together.

That was a really difficult story to read. I love the ocean but it also scares the absolute shit out of me.
