"Why did you come to Kamchatka?" - Dasha

"I wanted to get close to the beach, to the ocean, to the great power of it all." - Natasha

It's one of our final days in Kamchatka and today we decide to accompany Natasha to the beach. It's actually the main reason she chose to come to Kamchatka.

Living in Sydney, and a mere 40 minutes from the ocean/beach (which is actually quite far from most Sydneysiders) I've grown to take the beach for granted at times.

So it completely amazes me to meet someone who has chosen to fly 8.5 hours to come to the beach. Nonetheless we think it will be a lot of fun so we decide to join Natasha on her beach adventure. Like all fully hectics, I decide to call everyone in my phone to join us for a picnic at the beach.

Three cars later, 1 push bike and a whole bunch of food we are at the beach making tea on the fire we've built and eating very melted ice cream. Casha and Galia are there, Casha whom we met in Nalchevyo National Park is there and even Casha (the bus driver) is there too. With the Casha's in tow we take turns flying kites and reminiscing on the good times we've had.
