Looking south from where I turned back. I did see the buoy Willie told me about, and strongly considered jumping off the ledge and swimming out there, but can see myself get stuck out in the ocean since the waves made the reef area treacherous to swim through - and the entire area including the beach is ringed by reefs. Someone mentioned I might be able to swim back through a channel in the coral to the beach, but the ocean looked pretty choppy and I wasn't certain where the channel was.
