Cool and clear, Thursday morning was the perfect day for our visit to the Botanical Gardens.
After our trip to the gardens, we ate lunch in a stunning restaurant, Confeitaria Columbo. It is over 100 years old and was intended to imitate a French patisserie, but it is much more than a bakery. Patrons can stand at bars for coffee, sweets, and savories, or they can sit at tables for a full meal or afternoon tea. We sat upstairs and enjoyed gazing down at the tables beneath us.
I have yet to go through all my pictures from our afternoon at Sugarloaf Mountain, so stay tuned for “Thursday, Part II”.
