Barely Wild・30 DAYS WILD 11 – 20

Day eleven, much like day ten before it, was sadly spent with a migraine. Unable to move far from my bed I relaxed listening to the birdsong outside, occasionally taking time to peer out the curtains and watch the sparrows on the garden feeder. By day twelve I was...

Looe Island
