Winter has arrived, but not yet in Sardinia! The endless summer days in Sardinia are something I’ve been looking forward to since moving here 6 months ago. Mind you, the cooler season has definitely rolled in but only rears its head during the early morning hours and from the late afternoons and on. Just like anywhere in the world the temperature here varies. There are sporadic bouts of chilly weather and strong winds, then there are those sunny, warm days, reminiscent of summer. In fact, with temperatures sometimes reaching up to 70 degrees by midday, it often feels like the end of spring.
What better way to enjoy the beautiful weather than with an afternoon trip to the beach. If you didn’t know, summer in Sardinia is beautiful – but it is also hectic as hoards and hoards of tourists take over the quaint ocean-lined towns and the glorious beaches. As much as I love summer and the daily beach life, now that I am a local I’m learning to appreciate the calm and silence of the beach during off season. I often bring the kids to the beach on these warm days and truly enjoy the quiet time that we spend together in nature. I also love coming on my own, relishing in a silent yoga practice in complete solitude. The bright sun, the warm breeze, the sound of the ocean – it’s literally impossible to not be inspired by it all!
