Sunday at the parks 2. In the afternoon...

After lunch, I took some rest because my notorious migraine was threatening my Sunday. While Lucas watched some cartoons on TV, I stayed in bed with eyes closed after taking my damn medicine (I hate taking Ormigren, but it's the only thing that makes the pain go away, *sigh*). Luckly in half an hour it was gone (usually it takes hours to leave!!), and we could go to another park to spend the afternoon. It's in another neighbourhood, Botafogo, close to my own place. We took a bus to cross the tunnel that separates Copacabana to Botafogo, and in two minutes we were there, after walking a bit.

There Lucas went swinging...


... Climbed a tree for the first time...


... Climbed the squares...



... And showed off in the center of a sun clock: this is an old sun clock that was really used by the area's residents!


Behind the clock, you can see this majestic fig tree that is 200 years old, beautiful!


There's also this high, old chimney that belonged to a pottery factory. It's protected by a local law and can't be removed, as well as the fig tree.

As a bonus, when we were leaving, I spotted this cute stray cat in the middle of the green, like part of it:
We got home when it was getting dark. It was a good way of finishing our weekend and not to think that dad was still away - Rodrigo arrived at 6am this morning, sleepy and with his dad's farm's bottles of honey and packets of coffee to sell!
Hope you all guys have a great week, thank you for the patience in scrolling all this down!! :o)

I'm so behind in commenting here with you - sorry dear!

What a lovely Sunday you & Lucas had together - glad the migraine didn't spoil it.


Love

Oh, I just loved looking through all of your park pictures! Not only is it just lovely that you two had this wonderful time together, I am just in awe of the beautiful place that you live! How wonderful to have such fabulous landmarks that are obviously valued. I'm so glad to be given the opportunity to see a bit of Brazil and how much beauty it offers!

That tree is GORGEOUS! Magestic indeed! I'm so sorry to hear about your headache, I just gave in and got Tylenol. Five days with a headache is crazy!

Looks like a fantastic time out with Lucas, he obviously loves getting his photo taken and being out and about with his Mom.
