A Morning Walk in Ogliastra

I live a truly blessed life, being able to take a leisurely walk with our 2 labs on a beautiful sunny January morning in our corner of paradise which is Ogliastra, Sardinia. I hope you enjoy my little photo post of our walk, and next time you need to get away from it all for a break, consider Ogliastra, it’s a truly special place!

Looking out over the valley, blue skies, gorgeous views...

A shack for the shepherds I think, check out the car cut in half.

A little reminder that personal loss & grief are all part of life's rich tapestry as I pass a memorial at the side of the track.

And we go through the woods, this is near the end of the walk and the place the girls go mad chasing each other and playing hide and seek around benched and boulders!

Chase me, chase me!

Chase me, chase me!

The woodland covered in diverse funghi, that's it, back home now for a cuppa and some lunch!
