A Month of Haiga – February 3, 2016


This morning I thought it’d be nice to revisit summer … or imagine a future summer – so today’s theme is:

a walk in the summer

The Trentino part of Lake Garda,  where I live isn’t very wide.  It’s the smallest length of the lake in fact.  Well-known to the German and Austriansurfers for the afternoon wind called the “ora” that comes up from the south they flock to the area from the beginning of May on into September.  In the morning the wind is all but absent, or perhaps it comes down from the valley towards the lake.  Ah, but when the afternoon wind picks up, the surfers (and now recently the kite-surfers – but only in certain areas) run to their boards and hit the lake.

All along the lake front there is a paved walkway sometimes shared with bicycles.  The picture below was taken from that lakefront walkway between Riva del Garda and Torboli (where Goethe spent a couple of days during his tour in Italy).

February 3 Haiga

If you’d like to participate, but are inspired by something different – that’s fine by me – to participate with me this month  you can link your haiga post in this Mr. Linky app:

You may want to  tag as well (Bastet’s One Month of Haiga).

Have a great day!  Bastet!

  2. I enjoyed reading about your part of the world. I had no idea people could surf on a lake. As it is summer over here I would love to write about taking a walk here. It is now sunset on the 3rd and I am too tired to write now so it will have to be done in the morning.

    • Hi Suzanne .. yes one surfs with a sail! I used to wind-surf myself in my younger years, though never really proficient in the sport. You most certainly can write about your summer … you lucky dog! 😉

      • I’ve been trying. Its been an odd summer – hot, dry and crowded with tourists. Too much traffic on the roads. Hard to write about. It rained last night for the first time in a couple of months. I might write abiyr that – summer rain canbe a blessing.

      • It rained here also yesterday .. the first time in quite a while. I live in an oasis of sorts created by Lake Garda .. so although we’re on the footsteps of the Alps we have a warmer climate than any other place in this area … which is why we have lemons, palms and olives etc which just cant cope with the cold. Hope the rain relieved you .. that sort of heat is very hard on people.

  3. I feel like we haven’t had Winter here. Must admit it’s been a bit boring except for one snow storm and yesterday’s tornado watch! 😉 I would love to visit Italy, especially after your description! Be back with my offering.
