Besides Work

I am a seaside child

Bound to the wind, sand and water.
I try to get as much time at the beach as possible from spring to autumn. It's just pure quality time for me.
One season is missing: winter.
I tend to not spend my time on the beach in winter. That's the time of the mountains...
