"Sardinia, one of my favorite places. Fond memories. Loved the beaches and brilliant, sparkling cyan water everywhere. Fascinating, enchantingly beautiful, historical island. Did anyone say Nuraghe, almost cave-like dwellings constructed of white…"
"Thanks everyone for your candid and detailed comments. Any and all information helps when one is first starting to learn something new. My tweets @frostphotos are not private but I will keep removing the undesirables. The next challenge will be to…"
