Dear all,felt my feet squelching and sticking in something soggy. There was no bog to my knowledge near the track, so I must have wandered a long way off my course. I extricated myself with difficulty and very cautiously edged myself towards the sound of the sea.
The above is taken from a textbook, and I am wondering whether "I extricated myself with difficulty" sounds correct to your ear, because "extricate...from.." is commonly used. Looking forward to your opinons. Thanks in advance.
