Sleek to its desire inviting the
Lovers of a wild coast at its best

        I envy you though because I can only draw stick figures 🙂

      • Well, there is a quote from Albert Einstein which I’m sure you are familiar with that I just heard about yesterday that goes…
        Everyone is a genius,but if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree,it’ll live its whole life believing it is stupid.
