    If you're vacationing in a different part of the country, make sure you're aware of LOCAL aquatic dangers. Jumping in a lake or river in NJ comes with very different dangers than jumping into one in say... Florida or Louisiana. Research if you're going to enjoy nature while on a vacation please. Know what to look for including venomous snakes, plant dangers, insects, alligators, sharks, jelly fish, and other flora and fauna. Also, make sure you have appropriate first aid tools with you, this includes if you're going on hikes, or even to a park. It's not uncommon in some areas to find a coral snake or rattler in one's back yard, let alone off in wooded areas.

      Every thing you said is very important. I'm so glad I'm getting so much positive input here. I'm learning new things myself.

      I learned to stay away from the water after I almost drowned in a lake at age 20.

      I'm not a nature type person. But swam a lot as a child on the Jersey Shore.
