Winter at Tintswalo Atlantic

Winter at Tintswalo Atlantic

Moody skies, the wild gray Atlantic ocean crashing at my feet, the smell of salt heavy in the winter air, a cold wind whipping wet hair across my face, a fireplace crackling in the corner. This is what my winter dreams are made of. The only thing that could improve the scenario would be a […]
