Natural Occurrences | Sardinia, Italy

A juniper tree grows wild from years of abusive on the north-west coast of Sardinia, Italy. She grows among the red barren earth, mindless of her decaying ways.

There’s a small hike we take along the coast. We call it The Beach Hoppin’ Hike and it takes us around, through and over one of the most ruggedly beautiful landscapes I have ever seen. Coves, inlets and half-moon bays pave the way to an afternoon baking in the warm May rays.

Isola Rossa is in the distance. You can see the 1500 BC watch tower presiding over the small harbour town. Our plan is to make it there today, but we are tired and prefer to bake like lazy lizards in the warm afternoon sun.

What did you do today?

    Beautiful pix as usual. (1/3 sand, 1/3 water, 1/3 sky…I bet you don’t even think about it anymore, it’s just automatic.) I didn’t doing anything as fun as this….maybe you’ll get a tower pic next time.

  2. Great photos Jennifer, i was doing a small job to-day.

  3. Good god, that tree is stunning. Would LOVE to take that walk. I’ve done nothing today but work on my memoir and blog.

    Took a beautiful walk, admiring the queen anne’s lace as big as dinner plates, thistles of brilliant purple, and of course the splendid sardinian landscape…among the more mundane things like cleaning the pool, hanging paintings and mirrors, building shelving and putting away clothes : )

    Love the first shot. All the twisted roots, reminds me of a Tim Burton film. It would look spooky in a low-light setting.
    Good one. -David.
