name of dream:

ocean water 5

 

there were three of us about two kilometres from the shore in a dark-grey unfriendly sea

 

one of us was convinced he couldn't make it to land and was projecting he was going to die, he might have been injured

 

the other two didn't feel it was hopeless and managed to persuade him to try

 

the water was only slightly choppy and was making the swimming more difficult but not enough to stop us making headway

 

about a third of the way to land we came to a breakwater wall

 

the wall a little less than a third of a metre wide and was only submerged below the sea by a finger-length

 

we were able to stand on it

 

we were walking along it when the sea began to get choppy

 

the waves were strong enough to make standing and walking too difficult so rather than chance losing the support the wall was giving us we decided to get back into the water and feel our way along the wall

 

we came to the corner of the wall

 

we could now see exactly how far it was to safety

 

it was still a full kilometre and the chop and swell could easily change at any time and we were tiring

 

we were not, by any way of looking at it, out of danger
