Walking beside the beach.

A beautiful view from my garden.

Walking in the greenway.

In front of my yard, a cow and her calf.

This is the entrance of my yard.

Photos by myself


  1. Sonia! Wow! Thanks for taking me on a walk in your neighborhood. To live by the sea is a dream. Each & every photo is a lovely view of where you live. It is beautiful.

  2. Earlier I tried to leave a comment here but it got lost, I guess. :( anyway I loved the pictures. It's nice to see 'summer' when it's 'winter' where I am. You have such a beautiful location and you are so generous to share its bounties with the rest of us.

  3. Sonia, once again lovely pictures! Everything is so green and that water looks so blue!

    You live in a beautiful spot indeed. Thanks for sharing those delightful pictures.

  4. What a lucky person you are!!! Thank you for sharing where you live. It looks so lovely and warm! What is the average tempature in December?

  5. What a beautiful place to live! You always provide a new glimpse into your garden and neighborhood. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Be careful, Sonia.. a band of bloggers may just show up on your doorstep. It is very lovely.

  7. Sonia, now those are the kinds of walks that I could get used to enjoying.

    I love walking along beaches and being able to see the shore. We used to live along the Nova Scotia shore, but it was rocky and the water was cold.

    Your neighborhood looks much more inviting.

  8. Beautiful... I love the very large trees.

  9. Gorgeous!

    (We're expecting snow tonight and temps of 6 degrees F tomorrow night. : )

  10. Bravo!!!
    Vos photos devienent de plus en plus belles !!!
    Splendide .
    Great thank you for birds and music of Bach by Luiz Simas !!

  11. My wishes come true! Your area defines 'green'! GORGEOUS...love the country side you live it...water and country together...rare here in the States! Can't wait to 'take a walk' again with you!
    Luiz Simas very uplifting this morning-thanks a bunch for sharing :)

  12. Sonia-- It is so beautiful where you live. You have found a spot that reflects back to you what you have in your spirit. That's how you notice what is so beautiful.

  13. Nice series of photos Sonia. You live in a beautiful part of the world.

    What is the weather like out there at the moment?

  14. Sonia, how lucky you are to live there. It is beautiful!

  15. Thanks so much, everyone, for your generous comments!

    Sandy and Paul, here is some information about the weather of São Paulo's State. Most of Brazil from São Paulo to the north is blessed with a tropical climate where it is difficult to tell when spring becomes summer and summer, autumn.Seasons in Brazil are the reverse of those in Europe and the United States:
    Spring: 22nd September - 21st December
    Summer: 22nd December - 21st March
    Autumn: 22nd March - 21st June
    Winter: 22nd June - 21st September

    São Paulo’s Weather:
    Summer in São Paulo, officially begins around November and ends in March with temperatures reaching up to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Celsius). Expect occasional, brief storms. The climate is more temperate in the spring; winter is damp, but the temperature rarely becomes uncomfortably low. The tropical climate injects an certain unpredictability to the weather.
    The Southeast enjoys a more moderate climate with cooler winters. The area includes the states of Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Espírito Santo and Minas Gerais and extends from the mountains to the sea. Here you'll find the major cities of Belo Horizonte, Rio do Janeiro and São Paulo the largest city in Brazil and South America.

  16. Wow, what a beautiful landscape. It looks like a lovely place to live - the countryside must be such an inspiration to you. Thank you so much for your recent comment in my blog - so appreciated.


  17. How wonderful to find someone in So. America. I found you on PJ's blog and had to come over. What a beautiful place you live!

  18. Wow you live in such beauty! Good photography too.

  19. I love your pictures! You really do live in pure beauty. I like the calf and cow!

  20. My God, you live in such a beautiful place...so peaceful and serene...all these pictures give me such a lovely lovely feeling about where you are...I love coming to visit you Sonia and seeing so many very stunning things of nature I might not see anywhere else. I thank You!

  21. Wow. Nice neighborhood. These pictures warm me to my bones on this snow morning in NY.

  22. So lovely! It's snowing like crazy here and I am longing for the beach.

  23. Hi Sonia,

    Wow, what a beautiful place you live in. I used to live by the ocean and loved being near it. The landscape there, though, was not nearly as beautiful as yours. I'm leaving on my first trip to South America in less than 24 hours. So excited to be in almost-summer after freezing temperatures here! Thanks for taking us on your walk. :)

  24. Sonia, I commented in previous thread, but meant to comment here! Just to say - wonderful!

  25. Oh, what a wonderful world :-) Do you find shells on your beach? I always love to collect shells

  26. Sonia, your photos are amazing. Thank you for enriching my Sunday morning. (What a stunningly beautiful place to live!)

  27. Hi Sonia, i has been cold here in the UK today so I have just had a walk in the Brazilian sunshine!

  28. It is so cold here this week that a walk with you in your neighborhood is a real treat. What a beautiful view you have from your garden!

  29. Brazil is a country I have always wanted to visit; and after seeing your lovely photos, the urge to travel is very strong!

  30. How wonderful of you to share your pictures with us. This is the most fun thing about blogging is actually seeing and learning about different places.

    You have a lovely place to live and the weather looks outstanding. We just had our first snowfall.


  31. Wow - those photos are beautiful! A bit dieffernt from the snow over here in Sweden!! Helen

  32. Hi Sonia,
    This is my first visit to your blog. Totally love your photos. Looks like a beautiful area to live. Most blogs I look at are currently experiencing Winter, so it's unusual to see sunny photos. I am in Australia, where we are also in warm weather.
    Take care,

  33. My goodness, what a lovely place to live! And your photography is just wonderful!

  34. I agree with everyone else, you did a wonderful job documenting a walk around your neighborhood. Seus fotografias são muito bonito. Incrível! And thank you for the bonus information about the weather.

  35. Beautiful blog. Thanks for sharing the dreamworld you live in.

  36. These photos are so beautiful.
    Illinois winters are brutal - when I need a break I will visit your website and pretend I'm looking out my window.

  37. Your pictures are gorgeous. Walking along the route you show, would be fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing!

  38. I really enjoyed the tour of your neighborhood, Sonia!

  39. Hi, I was just wandering the blogosphere and here I am at your blog. I enjoy the style of how this all works.

    This is one to watch.


    What is a time share?
