Swimmers at Jurmala, you are on your own!

I'm sorry I don't know how to turn the pictures.
This is another view of the changing rooms on the beach.
The top sign says the is for swimming and then has the phone number for the lifeguard. It's in Latvian so we asked one of the brothers to translate for us. When he did, we ask how that works--if you see someone drowning, you call and the lifeguard comes--when? He said "about 10 minutes" and smiled. Life in Latvia is very different.
Notice the sand--it's so white and soft and fine. It's a beautiful place. Just don't go swimming!
