Snapshots: Reflections of Summer in Sardinia

It seems that winter has eluded us, at least for the last four days it has, where we’ve had temperatures upwards of 19 degrees celsius and we’re still in the month of February. After a harsh, wet, grey and snowy winter it is invigorating to see the bright blue skies and the warm, luminous sun that casts its brilliant rays on my pale Canadian skin. These are my reflections of summer in Sardinia and it’s times like these that I dream of our endless summer, dream of the warm waters of the Mediterranean and dream of a place where time ceases to exist.

When the weather clears, all I care about is putting my feet in the warm sand on the coast of Sardinia, walking the beach or reading a novel as the soft wind blows. I’m a Canadian that escaped the cold harsh winters of the north for a more subtle, relaxing and always brilliant atmosphere where I can find peace with myself and with the world around me.

The only place I’ve found that deep serenity is here … in Sardinia.

Where do you find your peace of mind?

    • Your garden sounds like a perfect blessing. I wish we had space to plant a garden, I wouldn’t ever leave the house if we had. 😉 Thanks for always stopping by and commenting, it’s appreciated. Do you blog?

    I tend to find peace of mind anywheret in the wilderness, be it woodland, mountains or by the sea. Having been to Sardinia last year though I definitely experienced peaceful moments, but as there were seven of us (three kids) it wasn’t always particularly quiet!
    The beaches were always packed when we visited, so it was inland where I found some lovely spots. In the village of Nurallao where we stayed and up in the mountains.
