Pousada, by Patricia Saraiva

This wonderful view is in the back of Pousada do Breu, Lapinha from the State of Minas Gerais. The day dawned beautifully with clear blue sky, the mountain, lake, grass, and coconut tree composing a wonderful frame. The detail of the white furniture in the garden gives all the charm!
