A natural fisherwoman pt2

I still look uncomfortable, but I’m definitely getting better: I had no idea what I was doing, but it seems I’m pretty good at sea fishing. You should see the bruises I have on my leg from yanking it out of the sea though. My arms are still wobbling from the fear I’d accidentally captured […]
