I went in search of inspiration (on an impulse i might add), not entirely sure what i would find waiting for me when i landed in Ponta Delgada. I loved everything about it from the minute i started wandering.
The colours of the buildings. Oh. My. Like candy ! Perfectly pastel in their tones, and so many of them.
Much to my delight, my apartment was situated by a near by botanical gardens (Jardim Botânico José do Canto) - which is always my first port of call when exploring a new place. I spent the afternoon drawing in the sun. It was glorious.
The rest of my time there was spent wandering, and absorbing and happily taking pictures (colours best captured on film, in my opinion). All the while surrounded by rolling hills covered in palms and shrubs. Such bliss! I wish only I could have stayed longer..
