There's something that wants to keep us down by the ocean's shores , and it's not only the sun , surf and relaxed feeling , there's something in our soul that comes alive with the ocean , playing and swimming amongst the seaweed fronds and rocks and identifying all the strange little creatures in the rockpools....
We will learn to cook wonderful recipes from all the plants and seaweeds that we have found along our way , creating the most succulent wild food dishes , all the while getting replenished by the sea air and expansive views of the ocean.
We will also forage for plants and flowers in the forest with possibility of berries and mushrooms to !
