If only I could take home…

We’ve been so busy this week in Portugal. We are either driving, my head in maps, or looking around, not wanting to miss a thing. Today it’s nice to spend a quiet moment on our beautiful terrace in Tavira in South Portugal. It’s full of comfy chairs and succulents of all types. At roof height the Clay roof tiles are just as decorative as everything else we see. These are the things we can’t bring back home. Though, I’ll make sure the inspiration makes it back to Memphis.

Bussaco with the friars and Napoleon

I’ve needed some inspiration.
A mix of history and beauty.
Camille booked us at the most amazing hotel in the middle of the Bucaco National Forest. Not only is the hotel full of treasures like old photos and amazing furniture from the mid-1800′s, but attached to the hotel is a monastery. In it are original religious paintings and figures. The garden dating back to 1886 took my breath away or maybe it was the winding nature trail, established by the friars, we took a bit ago? It’s amazing to think of the lives spent here in the middle of the woods. Apparently Napoleon’s men fought a battle here.
