Sardinian Summer…Sort of

     We spent this last week exploring northern Sardinia, with our friends who have been vacationing on the island for the last 14 years. It was a wonderful way to get “back to nature”: staying in a farmhouse overlooking a cattle grazing pasture, and then out to the mountains and Mediterranean beyond. It was also an unexpected opportunity to reacclimatize ourselves to life in Portland, since it rained for much of the week. Plus, our friends are honorary Portlandians, thanks to their tree-hugging, liberal-leaning, organic-munching, LP-gas Subaru-driving ways!

     We took advantage of every sun break, enjoying the dramatic scenery and turquoise sea that are Sardinia’s claims to fame. It was a spectacular way to welcome summertime.
