“In the Restaurant there is the mask of duty and so on. I can understand that. But on the beach you have to breathe fresh air! I come to the beach to have a rest, a breath of fresh air, before I have to return to work.
We need to look at all the people passing by, sometimes, but we do it for the Little one!“

Oh, we’re careful, Yes, we are careful. We watch them, but others are not. It all join or no need to.
