I'm gobsmacked! It reminds me of my first cave dive in the Canary Islands...that is truly unique!

Speechless! I'll comment again when I think I can do it justice!
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Very imaginative and perfectly executed. What an exquisite float tube! Extremely well done.

Absolutely brilliant. Every home should have one.
