Thank you Anamaria, Maggie and Juankar, for taking the time to write a few words!
Yes summer was sweet and tender. Our friend Johnny who takes us to fish and dive use to give me a seashell every time I leave Mauritius. He knows I keep my temps searching for them myself. This time he took this one out from a corner of his boat when we said goodbye. Always a sad moment for us but he tries to make us smile... and so does this seashell!
