I'm still having terrifying dreams about going to the beach. The waves are enormous and the undertow threatens to pull everyone into the dark water. But no one seems to notice that anything is wrong. Large decaying buildings litter the dark skyline. There is a 10-foot wall where the undertow ends, and beachgoers nonchalantly climb a single rope ladder to narrowly avoid their peril. I don't remember if I got out.
