Wednesday word of the week – Riptide

seariptide is a strong surface current from the shore.

rip is a stretch of rough water caused by the meeting of two or more currents. Both can be very dangerous to swimmers and people floating around on lilos and the like.

Riptide can also be used to describe a state of conflicting psychological forces. That doesn’t sound a whole lot more fun than being washed out to sea, does it?
