Destructive burning in the hills

The weather is still too hot, that's why since the first week of August I haven't increased my runs. Moreover, I had a relaxing weekend from August 21st to 24nd and, consequently, I didn't run adequately. On the other hand, I went back to Gaeta once again, where I swan a lot. My cousin's boat gave me the opportunity to enjoy clean water. We also sailed and reached an island situated 18 miles West from Gaeta by boat. I really enjoyed snorkeling there.
 
The picture below shows the destructive burning which I saw while I was spending last weekend in Gaeta and its surroundings.

The beautiful and wild landscape has changed from this ...
 
 
to this.
 

Nice weekend to all my blogger friends!

Bushfires are part of life in Australia. Not one summer goes by without at least a few - often started by arsonists. But the bush always regenerates. Some of our plant seeds have adapted so that they won't germinate unless they've been through a fire.

It's been a hot summer, I hope we have some nice cool fall days soon...

Almeno nonostante il caldo e gli incendi hai potuto nuotare!
Qua non si vede ancora quando potremo fare una gara di mattina. Alle 10.00 ci sono ancora 30°.
Mah, ci rifaremo con una pizzata serale.
