Day of rest

We were all quite tired after a long day of sightseeing yesterday, so we thought a relaxing picnic was just the thing. I searched online for picnic spot recommendations and found a lovely blog that suggested a cafe and a picnic destination.

We took the train to a sweet restaurant called Cafe Lounge where we ordered food and borrowed a picnic basket (great tip from the blog). They packed up or food and wine and sent us on our way. We headed uphill to the Prague Castle terraced gardens (another great tip from the blog). We found a shady spot under some ripe cherry trees and whiled away the afternoon- eating, drinking, reading, napping. How perfect! The views and gardens were outstanding!

Adam had the chicken salad sandwich on cornbread with tomato and arugula. I had the homemade seeded bagel with homemade cream cheese (whoa!), Parma ham, balsamic reduction, and arugula. The food was fresh, simply prepared, and delicious. We all shared a bottle of rosé , raspberries, cherries, and a strawberry shortbread cookie. Life is good 🙂
