An adventure ..

It was such a beautiful Sunday here in Portugal today ... the sun was shining and not a single cloud in the sky. I packed the kids into the car and we headed off for a mini adventure!


We ended up going to a gorgeous place I know ... Buçaco ... it is an old palace (now a hotel) surrounded by a massive national park FILLED with trees from all over the world ..... even Punga trees from New Zealand, which always makes me smile ...



There were hundreds of autumn leaves around ...


... and we found this massive old Australian gum tree ...


And decided to give it a hug ...



We enjoyed it, I hope you enjoyed our mini adventure too!

Looks great there! I was 3 months in Porto few years ago and we visit a huge national park near France border (if I remember correct) this is not that, right?
And your kids are super cute :)
