The season has started! My Lifeguard course is still valid until 2018 and since I didn’t have a better job opportunity at the moment, I decided to take the role as a Lifeguard for this Summer of 2017. I’ll be working full time, from 9:30 to 19:30 every day! I hope! I wouldn’t like to… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.10 – Renewal
Hello Autumn. Until next time Summer! The season has passed. At the beggining of September all Lifeguards notice a huge decrease in the flow of people, here at the zone where I work, the number of Lifeguards gets cut almost in half for the same areas since there are a lot less people coming to… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.9 – Farewell Summer
If you remember from my previous entry on this category, I have passed through a near death experience which you can read all about it here: goo.gl/ta5J8P After all that, just fifteen minutes after I left the beach in order to go home and recover, one little man, a colleague of mine who works for the… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.8 – Restrained Fury
And here it came. September 1st, supposed to be the most calm month of the summer to work as a Lifeguard at the beach. The sea was altered from what it was on the day before. Waves crumbled on themselves and clashed against the rocks in the distance, allowing for small lakes to be relatively… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga/Death – Ep.7 – The Sea’s Embrace
It is almost over. I’ve been working since June 21th without a day off and I am exhausted. Not physically speaking but the way my mind functions is clearly affected by this routine. I constantly lose the track of the days and I can’t keep myself concentrated long enough to write not even 50% of… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep. 6 – Exhaustion
A couple of days ago I finally got the courage that was lacking in my heart some time ago when I added the last entry of this category. There was a dense mist along the shoreline and you couldn’t see more than a hundred meters in any direction. I was starting to set up the… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.5 – Redemption
This entry has two categories. First because it started as a Lifeguard’s Saga long before I even knew it would exist. In 2013 or 2014, I don’t remember if it was two years in a row or just 2014 alone, I met a old couple around their 80’s who came to the beach almost every… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.4 – Time passes by.
So there I was, sat at my outpost around 4PM , watching the waves hitting the rocks from afar as the tide went lower and lower. Just some more minutes and I’d have a snack I thought. Everything was calm, despite the high flow of people that were at the beach. There was nothing for… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.3 – Found a lost child, but where’s the mother?
Ei there! Today I was feeling like writing another entry on my Lifeguard’s Saga, mainly due to one of the main things that I have to do throughout the day. Not that it bothers me a lot but I wouldn’t be bothered by it if people could actually read or even analyze what’s around them.… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep.2 – Hard to understand
Ei there guys! So as most of you know, if you’re an avid reader of this blog, I’m currently working as a Lifeguard in the summer. It is my fourth season as a Lifeguard, and in every season I get to experience some interesting events, either with people or with environmental occurrences. I believe that… Continue reading A Lifeguard’s Saga – Ep. I – Stubborn Old Lady
