Before leaving Cala Gonone we had a relaxing breakfast at the hotel taking in the beautiful day that lay ahead.
C even took his markers and drawing pad and went to the lounge area to sketch.
He created this beautiful drawing that will always remind me of our hotel and the gorgeous sea.
Our time in Cala Gonone was spent mainly on the beaches leaving little time and energy to discover the little town. So before leaving we walked around a bit and took in the lovely area.
Our plan was to stop at Gola Goroppu where I was hoping we could do a little hiking.
The view along the SS125 was breath-taking. Gola Goroppu looks amazing! Most of the articles I read on Sardinia referred to this area as the Grand Canyon of Europe. I can now see why.
Once we reached the start of the hike we found ourselves sharing the road with goats and some cows.
There was even a little calf that was running around like a rambunctious puppy. It was pretty funny to watch him running in circles.
Once we looked at the map we decided that it probably wasn't the best idea to go hiking. We had a met a couple in Cala Gonone that told us the hike was far more difficult than the guide had explained. So based on this info S was convinced we should do the hike on another visit. Plus, he doesn't think my Converse are good hiking shoes. They're better than ballet shoes! Remember my disasterous hike near Turin!
The drive to Villasimius was really pretty. Along the way we stopped at a farm and bought two different types of Pecorino cheese to take home.
We also ran into lots of farm animals out of the road.
By the time we arrived in Villasimius and checked into our hotel it was time for a nice dinner at Sa Tankitta, a place one of my Sardegnian friends recommended.
