Life seems to take on a new meaning for me yearly, around my birthday. And in 2005, for my 30th birthday my good friend and I set out for Brazil. We flew into Sao Paolo direct from Toronto.

With temperature lows of 10c and highs of 30c.  The flowers are blooming and their scent floats in the warm air this weekend; a new season is sprouting.  Mating Season.  The cows are howling, the cats are going crazy and the town joker has begun his slow decent fuori. Escaping to the beach was the only answer.  Sardegna is a blooming-exotic delicious island.  Happy Spring.  Happy Weekend.  Please enjoy the following photo’s from a day at the beach.
