    by Kvintet | 15th of November, 2015

    Long way behind. We arrived safely in a small town on the sea. Quickly settled and drank tea. With trepidation we go to the sea. Early morning. High cliffs on the shore. Autumn, September. Light rain drizzles.             The sea is beautiful in any weather.... More
