A visit.

Every summer we have turtles coming to visit us...
I simply think there is a path that runs in our garden.
I remember the same turtles arriving every year when I was a child ,
and I used to stand on the shell of the big ones and they would walk slowly with me on top....
In the photos is one of the first arrived in these days, it is a young one.
In Sardinia these animals are protected now.
Many people come and just decide to take them home...
How can this be? it just a matter of brain... If you are stupid you simply like the animals and think that it would be nice to take them home with you... so as I said they decided to protect them and if you are caught with a turtle you 'll have (and deserve!) a heavy fine!

Foreste Aperte. (4 of 4)


View of Perda 'e Liana.

On our way back from the event we found this "nuraghe" and we stop to see it closer.
NURAGHE is built of stones, you find many in sardinia, it is the tipical house of ancient sardinian people.
This is the one called Ardasai, in the Seui archeological park. From it you can see circles of fallen stones in the fields in front . It is ruins of an ancient village and graves called " Tombe dei Giganti" ( last 2 photos)

View of the lake Flumendosa.

Foreste Aperte. (2 of 4)


During our visit we had some nice encounters...

Wild boars coming near to eat any food people would give them..

A gipeto (this is a stuffed one) .
There are few in Europe and they are trying to reintroduce the species in Sardinia too.

By the main road when we were driving...


a young calf drinking fresh water by a fountain,

Goats, my favourite.
They were so nice: I stopped the car and asked them to turn to the camera and smile!

Foreste Aperte (1 of 4)

Last sunday , together with some friends, I went to a beautiful event called Foreste Aperte, which means Open Forests. It was the first time for me, we visited The Foresta di Montarbu, near Seui, in the middle of Sardinia at about 2 hours drive from where I live.
First of all I was very surprised how well it was organized, the place is beautiful , lots of paths to walk, a river, lots of animals, lots of people, and good food too...we were even given a plate with the name of the event to bring home! The kids had entertainment, special walks, some tree climbing with experts, orientering games,a treasure hunt, and environment education lessons with free plants as gifts at the end.
It has been a different day ..we usually lay lazy on the beach!
So do not miss the next posts with more photos....
