We love to always celebrate firsts with weddings - and this quick snapshot marks one! The lifeguard was doing one last sweep before the end of her shift and wished the newly wedded couple 'Congratulations'. That created the openning for this photo - the first of it's kind for us.
As you are visitng Florida, please familiarize yourself with the flag system and adhere to any warnings.
- Double red flags: means that the water is closed to the public. This is a flag that means water conditions are dangerous and it’s not worth risking it.
- A single red flag: means high hazards such as high surf and/or strong currents. This typically means, swim at your own risk. But if you are a poor swimmer or have small children, it’s safer to avoid the water during these conditions.
- A yellow flag: means that medium hazards such as moderate surf and/or currents are present. It’s still the same factor of “swim at your own risk,” so make your best judgement before making that call.
- A green flag: mean low hazards or a consistent calm condition. This is not extreme by any means so go enjoy the water! But always be cautious since ocean conditions can change.
- A purple flag: means that dangerous marine life such as jellyfish, algae, etc, have been spotted. This flag indicates that you should swim at your own risk.
