|I'm not brand conscious but when it comes to high performance outdoor equipment, I trust The North Face. If only I can afford it. And since I cannot, I just borrow from my brother.|
|It was drizzling the whole afternoon. This was the first time the sun showed itself prompting lovers and friends to come out and enjoy the sun and sand. It was raining half the time we were in Puerto, but we didn't mind.|
They come and go. Touching the shore inviting you to be part of it.

|I have always loved the beach. The smell of the salty water, the wind in my face, the gentle roar of the waves all combine to create a sense of peace and calm. Our memories of the sea will linger on even after our footprints in the sand are gone.|

|Fire dancer. It's hard to earn money in this kind of business, the risks are very, very real.|
