This was the dress my daughter picked up for the Birthday mentioned in the previous post.

 

It’s by Il Gufo.

We love their products: the quality is excellent, the style is classic but trendy at the same time and, first of all, they are extremely comfortable. If we don’t find the right measure or the dress we are looking for in our shops, we buy it in their online store.

The shoes are by Gallucci (www.Galluccishoes.it), an Italian shoemaker which manufactures handmade children shoes since 1950. These shoes have an anatomical underfoot, a transpiring sole and give the child a total stability. And they look stunning!

 

We had matching dresses 🙂

but her shoes were much more fancy than mine 🙂

We went yesterday to a wonderful birthday party, an escape from the city life.

We had  sun, nice weather and a wonderful sea view.

The house is near Porto di Capitana, ten minutes outside Cagliari, and it has stairs which lead to the beach. But the children decided to run and play in the beautiful garden (which was more relaxing by the way then having to run after them on the beach :)).

While mothers were chatting and relaxing, children were enjoying the delicious buffet: small pizzas, mini focaccia with olives and ham, savoury mini croissant with raw or cooked ham, salami, cheese and mortadella, crispy chicken and mini tramezzini in every possible combination.

We had music and entertainment…

and I forgot to take pictures of the birthday cake (I will improve, I promise!).

But before going away I took some other pictures of the wonderful view

and of the sunset.

It was great. We went home in a very good mood singing “Just call me maybe” in the car ad eating the food our kind guest gave us to bring home.

Life is wonderful!

I have gone to Carlo Forte for years and close to my Forties I developed a strong connection to this wonderful place.

There is too much to tell about this island that cannot be squeezed in a single post . So this subject is going to be divided into several posts.

Let’s start with the natural beauties like this one.

This is the beach called “La caletta” perfect for the surfers when the mistral blows and for the families when the southwest wind blows. – I wasn’t really a wind expert till few years ago. But as a Sardinian woman I couldn’t get around this issue if I wanted to enjoy the beach in summer and so I had to start dealing with them.- So, on Saturday we stood up and no sign of mistral, so we head to La Caletta which looks like this in the sunlight.

And here we had lunch.

– For the food see my next post –

 And I fell in love with this house (the architecture and design of Carlo Forte houses are going to be part of another post too).

I am considering moving here, if the owners move out …

On Saturday the Mistral was blowing so we head to “La Bobba”.

where we swam and lay in the sun and ate sea urchins on the rocks, which was an unforgettable experience.

 

And then it was already time to go and we waved goodbye to the Carlo Forte promenade from the ferry.
