The inside of your mouth tastes like seawater.
You open your eyes to find yourself on a beach. As you stand, you feel your cold, wet, crumpling clothes writhe against your body like a second layer of skin. You’re soaked, and half your face is covered with sand.
Behind you is the ocean. The sky is slightly cloudy, but the sea is calm, the waves only gently lapping the shore. The sandy beach stretches on, but you can’t tell how far. Ahead of you is a dune, the top of which is lined with beachgrass. You can’t see over it.
What do you do?
> Maintain visibility with the sea and follow the shoreline.
> Make your way inland and get a better idea of your surroundings.
