Many of us take our vacations by the sea. The sea air does everyone good. The atmosphere by the sea is always relaxed and carefree. I have so many sun-filled memories of living by the sea...be it the Atlantic Ocean, the Pacific Ocean or the North Sea.

The first two freebie papers can be found by clicking on the label...."Freebies" on the sidebar.
