I remember ...

I remember a great adventure day, a complete immersion in a far world, though only a few kilometers from the town.
I'm alone, and this helps me to feel the Nature all around. In my soul I'm a bit anxious, as always happens when approaching an environment which surely has some surprise for me, some hidden unpredictable danger. But this looks as the perfect day, the sun shines in clear blue sky which paints blue the rocks of river bed. Even the sea around Dino Island is absolutely still.

So I remember ... serenity, adventure and joy to live and be there.
