“Sanoa Olin, alit on the early morning rock-walk, from the aforementioned camping vacation.”

“Another chilly December dawn paired with glowing sunshine and blustery outflows. They make for a bumpy wave confront out below, but at least they are superior for airs. Regrettably, this was the very last just one I did for a thirty day period or two soon after re-aggravating an now torn ACL.”
