    People need to get it through there heads that if it rains excessively for more than one or 2 days during a week that most likely that water isn’t safe to jump in. Let alone just eyeing it out and seeing it’s pretty obvious you can’t find those currents. Bad decisions like this will soon have this place closed. 👎
