FAVOURITE PART OF YOUR HOME
There is no question that my favourite part of my home is the beach. Of course, it’s not actually my beach, but it’s what makes my home special to me, as I can access it so easily at any time. It’s as if I’m living on the edge of the world. The beach allows you to be alone, or to interact with others using it. It’s a magical place!
