You’re on a beach with your dearest friends.
Can you picture them? Which of your friends did you choose?
What are your doing? Fishing with mates? Lying on the sand – soaking up some sun? Walking along the white sands with waves lapping at your feet?
Where is the beach? A tropical island?
Is it day or night? Sunset?
