That somehow did not happen last night either, so I figured it wasn’t that big. Later on the news […]

A man sunbathing in front of us was telling us that the summer was right there.   After a few hours, we left the ocean. And on our way home, we found a beautiful cornflowers blooming in a field.   There […]
