Photographer's Note

This is the third post of *misty bay*. Here you can see *FIRST* and *SECOND* post.

It was very cloudy night, but I get up early around 05.45 and go to meet new adventure. Taken cloudy morning before sun go up near city Palau.

Palau is definitely one of the most spectacular and noteworthy seaside towns in Gallura and bordering the Emerald Coast. It's also an important landing place for ferries coming from Corsica and the archipelago of La Maddalena. Its modern harbour's development is tied to the entire extending coastline, offering a variety of golfi, dream-like bays, uncontaminatedspiagge and small rocky islands that emerge from a crystal-clear sea teaming with life.

Palau's artistically shaped coastlines are sculpted by the wind that generates a wide variety of shapes and forms in its rocks. The most famous is that of dell'Orso. Over thousands of years, the atmospheric agents have amazingly transformed this rock to unmistakably appear like a bear. For those wishing to travel coast-to-coast while also visiting Palau's surrounding hinterland characterised by lush, Mediterranean vegetation, the Trenino Verde (green train) has been made available by Sardinia's Railway and has proven quite successful amongst tourists. It's fascinating because it travels through road-less areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. An unimaginable Sardinia appears from behind its glass windows, through forests, calm lakes and thick vegetation amidst which the train is forced to travel. There are numerous itineraries to discover this corner of paradise. For those deciding to adventure through Gallura, Palau is a destination not to be overlooked. Tourists can choose from many destinations, some of the more famous include: Porto Rafael, Capo d'Orso, Costa Serena, Isola dei Gabbiani, Porto Pollo (surfers' paradise), Stintino's beautiful military fortresses, Capo d'Orso, Altura and Baragge. Of the many Sardinian destinations, that of Palau should not be missed.

Hope you like it. Comments and critques are appreciated.
