This is a lifeguard stand behind the Barcelo Langosta Beach Resort. Sometimes there is a lifeguard on duty, and sometimes there is not. Being a lifeguard must be like being a fire fighter. You hope you never get called, but when you do, it can be crucial.
This is a good spot for a lifeguard because the Langosta Estuary flows in and out near this location. When the tide is going out, it is best to stay to the side of the estuary mouth, as it is like a river flowing out to sea. I have walked across the estuary mouth but I do not swim in the ocean in front of the estuary when the tide is flowing out. It is best to stay to either side of the estuary mouth.
This week we have photos of Africa posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
