Horta, Faial, Azores, Portugal

Jardim da Praça da República

This gorgeous little park was right beside the cafe we frequented for freshly squeezed orange juice and delicious fresh baked pastries. There was plenty of space to find a peaceful place to sit near the pond where I watched the local birds floating around and enjoyed nature from right within this beautiful little town.
