Christmas coming to an end

Christmas is already coming to an end.

On the 23:rd my sister and her family came over to celebrate an early Christmas as she was working on the 24th. We ate so we couldn't move but it was a very nice time catching up and just hanging out!

Then on the 24th we celebrated the real Christmas (in Sweden we celebrate on the 24th, not the 25th) at home with my grandmother, starting with the Donald Duck Christmas Special at 3pm. After the show we ate again and by 7:30pm it was finally time for the presents!

My grandmother is great but she is getting old now, yet she got plenty of energy. The problem is, she needs to be entertained every second. If you or someone don't talk to her for a moment or sit with her, she gets irritated! And there is not much to do during this holiday. It's cold outside, stores are either closed or packed, depending on the day, and there are only so much you can talk about! And, as with many old people, she puts the TV so freaking loud that your ears are ringing afterwards! And with age comes the whole forgetting part... But I'm happy that she is healthy, lives on her own and still going strong!

I hope you all have a continuos happy holiday!

Cheers my friends!

Record Cold

I know I have written this before, but I do have to emphasize on it one more time... It is FREEZING outside! And to be exact, it's between -15°C to -20°C (that's between 5°F to -4°F)! This is not normal! I repeat, this is not normal!!!!

My grandmother is down visiting for Christmas and tonight my sister and her family will come over and we will celebrate and eat plenty of food!

Tomorrow, on the 24th, that's when we celebrate Christmas.. That's the Big day! At 3pm Donald Duck starts (tradition.. You have to watch it. You can read this article Nordic Quack about the tradition, very funny!) Then we eat (remember all the food.. Christmas ham, pickled herring, Jansson's Temptation, beetroot salad, etc., etc.!

Then when it get's dark, Santa will come and knock on the door, come in to hand out the presents, drink something strong (to stay warm I guess?!) and then he goes to the next house (where I assume he drinks more!)!

This year Christmas is special in many ways. I am not working (!), I am actually home to spend it with family, and we are having a white Christmas!!! I can't remember last I actually had a white Christmas. Usually I have palm trees, sun and blue water to look at!

Caribbean Santa!

Christmas Food- breakfast, lunch and dinner!

December must be the month when people gain the most weight! We go to Christmas Parties with work, we go to our significant others Christmas Party (work), we are invited to friends houses and then on Christmas itself we eat even more at home. And then we shall not talk about in between all the parties and after Christmas.. Then we need to east all the leftovers! It's a big Smörgåsbord with food for an army.

Meatballs, ham, pickled herring (in every flavor you can imagine!), beetroot salad, Jansson's Temptation (potato dish), mini sausages, egg, smoked salmon, ribs, and rice pudding are just a few things you will find on the table! And you have to eat everything! The beverage served is beer and "nubbe" (the obligated snaps!) Skål!

Part 1 of the Smörgåsbord

The Crew

Tonight I feel like I never want to see Christmas food again. I ate it last night, I ate it this morning for breakfast, I ate it in the late afternoon...  And this was my first take on the food for this year... Some of my friends has already done both 2 and 3 and we all have more to come!

I'll be rolling down the street soon!

Cheers my friends!

Work Contract

So, it looks like my job hunting time is over...! 
I received a contract yesterday on my email and WOHO! is all I can say! It feels really good! 
Now I just need to make sure everything is ok in the contract, sign it, and then send it back!! 

I can't say too much as of yet, but this is what I might have to deal with on a daily basis! 

Cheers my friends!

Taking Care of Sick Child

Today I'm home with sick child... again... Yea, not mine if you wondered!
Stayed at a friend's house last night, and this morning (as I'm having my beauty sleep on the couch!) I got a phone call asking if I could stay the day and take care of the little one (a 2 year old). She had gone to kindergarden this morning as usual, but the staff called the parents as she didn't want to walk...!

So, here I am, watching Sponge Bob! Great Thursday!

Cheers my friends!

Thyroid Gland

Who knew... That the thyroid gland could make so many people sick...

Two weeks ago I gave 4 tubes of blood to my doctor (oh, they also attempted to do an EKG but the machine decided not to work, and before they decided it was not that important they had walked in and out of the room, about 4 nurses, with me on the table with cables taped to my upper body and no clothes on! Very professional ladies! Finally one of them realized and put my shirt on top of me while they figured things out!)

Anyway, yesterday I was back (clothes on this time!) in the office and got my results of the blood tests. Nothing drastic to worry about, but my doctor still thought I should should start eating Levaxin for the thyroid and all vitamin B... So, back in about 2 months to see if there has been any changes...!

Cheers my friends!

Frozen River

I don't think some of my friends reading this blog understand how crazy cold it is here at the moment! 
I just came back home from a short walk. Yes, it was short, because you can't stay outside for that long! 

It's too cold! It's -10°C (14°F)! 

And do I need to add that I have lived on the beach for the last couple of years! 
I snapped a few photos to show!

Still freezing!

This weekend started out with "Friday cosy" at my friend Lina's house! It was very nice and we had home made pizza and popcorn that evening and we just hung on the couch and zapped on the TV! I also got a bottle of home made glögg (mulled wine according to google translate?!) from her fiance to drink now before Christmas! We drink a lot of that here in Sweden, now before Christmas. I'm very excited and can't wait to heat it up and put some raisins and almond in it! Yum!!

I also got the phone call I have been waiting for, but more about that later!

Saturday I had a date with my cousins and my sister! Even though my cousins have moved down to the south from Stockholm, I barely see them! But, we finally got a day where we all could get together! We decided to head for Helsingborg and go out to eat somewhere there. When we were all gathered, we realized the snow was coming down so hard that we decided to stay at Knutpunten (after a quick try to go to Henry's across the street which were full). It was great to see them all, and I hope we'll do it soon again!

Sunday was the lazy day and in the evening I hung out with my dad and we watched Beck, a Swedish criminal movie series. That's what we usually do on Sundays!

And we got plenty of snow! And it's cold! Below is a picture of dad's house from today! It sure is better like this than rain and wind!

Cheers my friends!

Doctor Appointments

While at home I try to make sure I go to the doctors and the dentist to make sure everything is in order! Because when you are out traveling you never know what kind of doctor you get.

Like last year... I had to get my wisdom tooth removed and it was hurting like crazy. I asked around to find out where the best dentist were and I got many different answers. Some were suggesting cheaper places, some promoted their family members and then there was one, who told me to go to the store and get this specific paste to put on and around the tooth. And then it would fall out by it self!

Yea, right! With some bad luck you get that paste on all other teeth and they will all fall off. So I asked the american who I worked with, who has good teeth! And he took me to a great dentist. The only problem was that my insurance had expired the day before I went there!

Now I'm going to drink my coffee on the couch in front of the TV after my early doctor's visit. When I made the appointment the woman asked if I wanted to come at 8am or 10am. Why on earth did I say 8am???? I could have been still sleeping!

Cheers my friends!

Jay Smith - Like A Prayer

Today I just want to share this video clip from YouTube from the Swedish "Idol 2010".
Jay Smith is from my part of Sweden, but even though the Swedish population is less than big American cities, we don't know everyone around here.
Jay is definitely my favorite to win this year's Idol, and he's doing better and better every time.

This is Jay Smith doing Madonna's Like a Prayer! 

Cheers my friends!

There's nothing more frustrating than being in a "in between place". And that's where I am right now, for different reasons and on many different levels... Waiting for that email and phone call....

But hopefully it shouldn't last too long. I will have to stay focused on other things in the mean time. Such as stay home with sick child, gardening (yes, it was only 40 min, but it was freezing!) and cleaning the house.. Hmm... It is interesting though... I don't have kids or a house... But Sara do! Lucky her! ;)

Yesterday the snow was falling for the first time by me... It was quite a while ago I saw snow, and I guess it was a little bit nice, for a moment or so! The thing is, usually when snow comes here in the south, it melt by the time it hits the ground, or it's just slush... And it does not last for long (except last year, where it never went away. Luckily I was in Bora Bora and didn't need to worry about that!). Today the snow is gone!

Swedish winter should have snow. It kind of makes it a little better when the snow is laying. It kind of brightens up a little and covers all the dull colors. And it's nice to make a little snow lantern that shed a little bit of light, in the otherwise dark day. Because it get's dark by 4pm!

Cheers my friends!

Religion ala Eddie Izzard

Believe it or not, but I was actually in church on Saturday!

Last time I went to church was when my friend Sara baptized her daughter, about 5 years ago, and the time before that was probably when I did the confirmation, at age... what... 15?!

Yea, Swedish people, including me, are not very good at going to church more than when someone get married, baptized or at a funeral. If you have kids you might go there a little bit more when they are young and they go to "kyrkis" (an after daycare activity for young kids where they learn about the religion) and they sometimes sing at church.

Kvidinge Church
I have to say though, it's actually very peaceful sitting in there. However, Eddie Izzard (one of my favorite comedians!) is pointing out a very good thing in the clip below regarding the church singing. Forward to about the middle of the clip and you know what I mean, but the whole clip is hilarious!

Cheers my friends!

Friday has already arrived! Time goes by so fast although I'm not very busy!

This week I have caught up with some old friends, but mostly I have been inside surfing the net as it feel like my face is about to fall off every time I walk outside the door.

Tonight I'm watching Swedish Idol. I can't even believe I'm writing it! But yes, here I am on the couch with a small bag of candy (I know, everything is relative!) following todays theme of love songs! Not really what I feel like listening to at the moment, but can't help myself watching.

Otherwise, it's slow over here. I'm writing cover letters but I don't feel it's going any easier. In the Swedish culture we just don't brag about our selves. We learn to be medium, which takes me to a word we use in Swedish... "Lagom" which kind of translate in to just right/just enough/moderation. Everything in Sweden is lagom! If someone ask you how much food you want, you want lagom, how good are you at English? You are lagom.. You get the point? Not very selling!

Anyway, Jay is about to sing on Idol, and he comes from the the neighbor town. Need to watch that!

Cheers my friends!

Helly Hansen will keep me warm!

Dad is home and we finally have some heat in this house, so now I can run around in my bikini (if I want) and pretend I'm in the Caribbean or something! That's kind of how warm it is at the moment!

I also went to the mall yesterday and got myself some socks and a winter jacket. The jacket... I went for a Helly Hansen down jacket, so winter, bring it on! I am not going to freeze!
Went out to party party this weekend, and usually I would run in to plenty of people I know, but this time not so much. Either they were just not there or I just didn't recognize them. I'm not sure...

The place we went to is called 57 and sure, it's not located in a hip area nor is it a big club, but it sure was depressing! I really miss the party scene from SXM! Which leads to another thing... Dress code... How does some people (well actually many people) dress when they go out. The fashion in Sweden is really not good. What happen? Or is it because it's a small town?

Oh well... I'm constant tired (maybe because I haven't seen the sun in a week or so) and this past weekend we changed the time to winter time. Seriously, now it's dark at 5pm, and it will only become worse. I don't care if it's light earlier in the morning (usually I sleep anyway!), and I rather have some light in the afternoon! Soon it will be dark by 3:30pm! So depressing!

Cheers my friends!

Ski Mask

I just went for a walk down to Ängelholm city, which is not even a 5 min walk from my dad's house, to get to the ATM machine and check how bad my economy is (I miss those old days in the US when you could actually drive with your car up to the ATM machine to do your business, without even leaving the car! Something I think the rest of the world needs to look into!)

Anyway, the temp outside is about 6 degrees celcius... All I have to say is that I need one of these!

A ski mask! It was so freaking cold out there! It felt like my face and ears was about to fall off! 

The temperature in the house has not improved either. This morning I checked the temp in the kitchen (where 1 of 2 heaters in the whole house actually works) and it said 17 degrees! Brrrrrr! The neighbor was here the other day to check the heaters, and he thought we just needed to air them out, but that was not the problem. So I just have to sit and wait for dad to get back home from his vacation so we can get this problem fixed. In the meantime I sit with my big fleeze blanket and thick sweatshirts on! Hopefully my sister found some real Swedish ragg socks on her shopping spree today, so my ice cubed toes get warmed up!

I hope everyone else doesn't have to be cold out there!

Cheers my friends!

Having a cold...

I finally came down with the obligatory cold, as I always get when I get back to Sweden. Not sure if it's allergy to the miserable weather or just a cold! This time it is not nearly as bad as it was last year though.
Last year before I left St. Martin I started to feel it, and by the time I got home I had high fever and everything. On top of that, if I can remind you, it was in the middle of the swine flue craziness! So after a few days at home, where only my dad would get close to me, he took me to the doctor. As he parked he told me to wait in the car, and shortly after he came back and we drove around to the back of the doctor's office where they had open the back door! As I came in they pushed me in to the first available exam room. Then when the doctor came in he started asking me questions like "Have you travelled?" "Have you been close to a lot of other people?" etc. When I told him I work in the hospitality business and that I just flew back from the Caribbean, he had already labeled me as having the swine flue! He took a test and told me to stay away from people and that they would call me when the results came back. Quarantine, if you ask me!

The problem was that they never called back (we even called them several times asking for the result but they said they had not gotten them back) and by the weekend, I was feeling much better and of course I wanted to se my friends. When I called them, they all said "No thank you!" Understandable, since most of them has small children! The only one who would take me was my dear sister!

I never got an answer back from the doctor, so I assume I never had the flue!

Cheers my friends!

Jobs, jobs, jobs....

So, I'm back home, but I'm also back to where I was about a year ago... looking for a new job. I really hate this process, although I can decide where I want to go and what I want to do. For me it's much easier if someone just told me what I should do! I know, I'm a manager and have to make decisions all the time, but when it comes to myself I would not mind if I didn't have to! That's when I need someone to kick my ass!

Right now there are so much to think about and I guess I need to figure out a few things before I can make my decision. Where do I want to go? Island, big city, warm or cold climate? What do I want to do? Big hotel, chain hotel, resort, or city hotel? Do I want to stay in Sweden?

I have to say (and the ones who knows me and follow this blog, probably already know) I do like the warm, tropical climate! And another thing I do know is that I like the luxury hotel sector. I don't think I could work in anything less (no, I'm not snobby... It's all about the service level), but one should never say never!

So the next few days will be allocated to job hunting and see what's out there for me. I have already updated my resume/CV and tonight I have worked on my booklet (with letters etc.). I just have to start sending that CV left to right and see who replies!

Wish me luck!

Cheers my friends!

Did I mention...'s cold over here? I just checked the temperature inside the house...
It's 20C inside.. Brrrr... No wonder I'm freezing and sitting with layers of clothes on!

Cheers again my friends!



So, I have been home in Sweden for almost 2 weeks now, and even though it's great to be home to see all my friends, the travel bug is starting to itch again. And I think it's mostly because of the weather. I think I was born to live in the sun with clear blue water and white sand beaches! Time to look for a new destination and for a new job!

But while I have been home I have enjoyed other things!
The other night I had a great turkey dinner at my friend Lina's house, and Jessica and her family came as well, and it was fun to see how much their kids are growing, (which I think all my friends has kids by now and they are all growing up). But it's nice to meet up with your old friends and I don't feel a day older when we catch up and talk about old memories and other people!

 I also went out cruising with my friend Sara in her (30th birthday crisis?!) Rockabilly car! Am I getting old??
It was a lot of fun! We went all over the place on a Saturday when the sun was shining! Who knows, maybe I will end up on a rockabilly party soon!  

Went out to eat as well and what's funny was that I didn't realize how bad the service was until Sara started to complain when we were leaving! I defenitely stayed too long in Bora Bora! I mean, the staff was vaccuming the floors when we had our dessert!

That night we also went for a drink (or two..!). At the first bar we raised the average age a lot and the bartender, a young blondie, made me laugh so much. I ordered a Absolute Raspberry with Sprite, and I got this blank stare for about 10 seconds, before she went over to another bartender and wispered in her ear and then came over to ask what it was I wanted to order... Okej, so raspberry in Swedish is Hallon, but the thing is, on the bottle (which was right behind her) it said RASPBERRY! It's not rocket science!

The second bar was not much better, although we raised the average age until midnight, when all the old people went home and all the brats came. One brat kid who sat down next to me was bragging about his soccer and how he also had traveled, to Helsingborg and Helsingor... (just to clarify, Helsingbor is about 20 min from here and Helsingor is 20 min by boat from Helsingborg!). 
Good for you kid, you got outside the 50 signs!

At least I'm getting some good laughs!

Cheers my friends!

I am now back in Sweden and the trip back was a long one. 8h layover in Papeete, 12h in LA, (10h flight with another 9h and 3h) and luggage not checked in all the way to Denmark, so of course in Paris they wanted to charge me for my 30kg luggage overweight (I was allowed to bring on 1 bag at 20 kg! and I had 2 bags 27kg and 23 kg..) and the rate they quoted me was 11 Euros per kilo! Can you imagine? I got it down to 30 Euros, which I thought was manageble!

Sweden is cold, and the first few days I didn't even see the sun as the sky was constant grey, but the last week it has actually been sunny! Still cold, but the sun makes a big difference. It's still nice, for a change, to see farmlands and trees who are not palm trees!

My dad managed to schedule his vacation to leave the day before I arrived home (was that planned?!) and I have the house to my self for a month! Doesn't really matter as I'm driving all over to see friends and family and it has been quite a lot of couch surfing!

I miss Bora a little, the weather, the water and of course my pup, Coco.. I don't think I was was supposed to live in a cold climate! My body and skin don't like it!

Y'all take care for now, and I will update more now as I'm home and "settled"!

Cheers my friends!

Last of Bora Bora

Today is our last day as residents of Bora Bora. In a few minutes I will hit the shower (the last for the next 3 days!) and then we are heading to the hotel to say good bye before catching the boat to the airport.

Bye bye Bora Bora...

Cheers my friends!


4x4 Safari

The other day decided to take a 4x4 Safari around the island to see some different things. There are 2 companies where one is more about history and so on, while the other one is more like "wohoo". We went for the last one and we had plenty of fun!

We started off the tour with driving up to a beautiful view point overlooking Matira beach on one side and Vaitape on the other side. Absolutely amazing! But to get up there... I had no idea a Land Rover could drive like that. There are no road, just rocks and steep. But our guide, Terry, did very well for his first day at work. LOL! No, he had done it before!
View of Matira Beach
 After the view point we headed to the Pearl Farm and got to see how they pull out the black pearls from the oysters. I got to catch the pearl, but they didn't let me keep it  :o(
Tahitian Black Pearl
Then we did some driving around while he told us stories, showed us other view points, visiting a lady who painted pareos, and we finally ended up by the WW2 canons which are strategically placed around the island. Bora Bora was never attacked during the ware by the way.

Our guide
Good tour and a lot of fun! After the tour we had lunch at Matira Beach before heading back home!

Cheers my friends!

Shark Feeding

Today we went on a shark feeding excursion for a half day! What an amazing experience!

The weather was windy, as it has been the last 2 weeks, but at least the sun was up! The boat picked us up at the hotel and we went up to the barrier reef that surrounds the island. It's a tricky drive with the boat as there is corals everywhere, but our captain, obviously, has done it before and there were no accidents!

The first stop was the shark feeding. The captain got in and put a rope under the water along the boat, and then he pulled out the bucket with fish. Shortly after there were several sharks swimming around. After a short while we were aloud to jump in with our snorkels and we were all (we were 8 people) on a line holding on to the rope. The captain kept throwing the fish for the sharks while we watched under the water! Amazing! They were right there!

After the shark feeding we drove all the way up to the barrier reef that surrounds the island, and in Bora Bora there is only one pass where boats actually can enter in to the lagoon. Then we stopped for snorkeling. We got the gear on and then the captain guided us on a tour under the water. Another amazing experience. I have snorkeled before, but the corals were so beautiful in different colors and and they are everywhere! As I don't have an underwater camera, I was not able to take any pictures, but it's for sure something I will remember. When we got back to the boat we all got some food to feed the small, colorful fish, which were very friendly! 

After snorkeling we got back in the boat and went to another spot for Stingray feeding. The rays were more or less expecting us, and it didn't take long until there were several rays next to the boat. Again, the captain got in with his bucket and asked us to get in. Even before I got in, there was one coming up saying hello. They are quite big fish and very friendly. I was laughing the whole time I was in the water as they kept climbing on you. They are very soft and we could pet them on the top. One ray even gave me a kiss on the arm!

Lost my flip flop while the ray is kissing my leg

After feeding all the fish in the lagoon, we went around the island with the boat and ended up at motu Tapoo, a sandy little island in the lagoon. Absolutely beautiful.

  After spending some time at motu Tapoo, we headed back to the hotel. That's when the captain pulled out his ukulele and sang for us. Great day, and now I'm probably going to fall asleep in front of the TV. Tomorrow laundry and packing those bags are on the schedule!

Cheers my friends!

La Villa Mahana

We finally did it... We went to La Villa Mahana for dinner!

After almost a year, and several pushes from a dear friend who used to live here, we finally made reservations at this restaurant. La Villa Mahana is a small restaurant, and no doubt the best restaurant on the main island (off main island is of course Daniel's menu the best!)! The restaurant is located between Vaitape and Matira Beach and they only have about 6 tables (better make those dinner reservations in advance!).

It was a great experience... We took the boat from the hotel and was met by a driver in a nice black SUV who took us to the restaurant. There we were greeted by the chef himself, Chef Damien,  and his wife.
The restaurant is a Mediterranean inspired house, and you arrive on the terrace and walk in to a courtyard where the kitchen is located. To the right of the kitchen you enter the dining room, which is small and "private" with a small bar. On the left there are stairs up to a terrace with a small plunge pool on the side. That's where our table was! The best in the restaurant!  A big bench with cushions and table, private and romantic.

Private dining
  I had a goat cheese salad to start, beef tenderloin with gnocchi as main course while Daniel had tuna tartar and lamb rack. To finish the dinner we went with the home made vanilla iceream with local vanilla! Yum yum!  The portions were on the larger side, so by the time we were finished we could barely walk!

So, when in Bora, stop by La Villa Mahana and Chef Damien. It really is a different experience compared to other restaurants on the island.

Daniel, Chef Damien and me!

Cheers my friends!

Sweden, here I come!

My bags are packed and I'm ready to go.... Well, one bag is sort of packed, but I am ready to go!

On October 4th I will be saying good bye to this island that has been my home for almost a year. Do I feel like I want to cry and stay forever? No, not at all! You see, it's a big difference between visiting these islands as a tourist, and living here permanent.

As a tourist you (should) stay in one of the luxury resorts like Four Seasons, St. Regis, Intercontinental, Hilton, Pearl Beach (top 4 on trip advisor for a reason!). You stay in an over water bungalow, snorkel right off your room with colorful fish, see the colorful fish through the glass floor in your room, go diving, shark feeding, lay on the beach or by the pool and so on. Usually the regular guest stay only for a few days before they hop to another island.

The reality is slightly different...  Have I ever mentioned it rains a lot in this country!?

My flight leaves Bora Bora at 12:55 to Papeete in Tahiti. That flight only takes 50 minutes, and on that rout I'm sure we will stop on another island to pick up more people. In Papeete we have an 8h layover... (Who booked this trip??) Maybe it gives us some time to see Tahiti!

We fly out of Tahiti at 22:00 to Los Angeles, where I have a 12h layover (Really?? Seriously, who booked my flight???) Anyone have any suggestions on what to do? I was thinking of finding a McDonald...!

From LA I fly to Paris where I have another layover (just a few hours to manage to get out to terminal 1 which is a bus ride) before I get to step on SAS and fly to Copenhagen, and then head for SWEDEN!  

It's going to be a long trip...

Cheers my friends!

Coco Boy

This is my beautiful boy, Coco!

Coco Boy!

Went to visit Coco this weekend at his "new" place. And he's doing great!
He already made friends with the two labs and I think it won't 
be long until he is the pact leader!

He has definitely found his place there, still running back to the house to snooze
on the terrace though, and I could see that his more wilder instincts has kicked in. 

When we pulled up with the car he came running to the gate, didn't bark, and when he realized 
it was us he got so excited. Since the gate was closed, he run to the next gate
which was open, and jumped and kissed us!   

The sad part when we were about to leave and Coco immediately jumped in to the car, 
as he normally would do, looking so excited to ride in the car and looking
like he was ready to come with us. The girl had to put the leash on and hold him, and
when we pulled away he was crying and looking after the car....

The girl in the family told us he goes with the other dogs to the fruit field next door and
eat the fallen fruit. Mangos and bananas!  Yum! And usually she plays with him everyday 
after school. He also seems to take his new "job" seriously, watching over the property, and 
he is exploring new areas with the "supervision" of the two labs!

I have two more weekends to visit him, and I can't wait until next time!
Coco about 10 days

Coco about 6 months
Still loves crawling up in the lap!

Coco and his father

Coco on the Beach

Here are some pictures of my Coco at the beach!
He loves it there, but he's a little bit of a chicken when it 
comes to the temperature of the water... And I thought I was bad!

Watching mom while she's swimming


Swimming with Daniel

Coco loves giving kisses

Charming all the people on the beach

When resting from swimming, digging holes are a fun activity   

Me and my Coco

Everything is so interesting

Cheers my friends!
