A walk in the park…

After a long, lingering and oh so delicious brunch this morning at St Ali North, dear husband and I decided with puppy in tow, to make the most of this lovely autumn day. A walk in the park would be the perfect way to not only spend the rest of the afternoon soaking up the sun, but also walk off some of that yummy food.

So with that thought in mind we headed to one of my favourite spots … the beautiful Carlton Gardens. And here are just a few pictures I wanted to share of our little adventure today … a very enjoyable way to spend a lazy Saturday that’s for sure!
