Random pictures while I was out and about exploring.

Terra Nostra Garden and Pool

While the water may resemble a giant cup of coffee, the entire park and the multiple hot springs are actually extremely well-kept, clean, and relaxing. There are several walking trails that lead you through the tree-lined grounds of the park.
