How was the weather this week?:

This week the weather was rainy and cool. I have been lucky that it has been a warmer fall for Belgium, so it really has been feeling like the winters in California - something I have easily been able to get used to. I mostly wore a single jacket with long sleeves all week. The rain is usually light and consistent throughout the day. 

What animals did I see this week? :

This week I saw lots of dogs, especially on the one sunny day we had where everyone was outside soaking up the limited sun. I have been waiting to see a Belgian Shepherd, which is a breed of dog similar to the popular German Shepherd. I cannot wait to include one of these dogs in a future post when I do see one! Belgian Sheperds are usually dark brown and black and have a thick sleek coat like German Shepherd's. 

What was the coolest thing I saw in nature this week?:

On a recent trip to London, I saw these super thick mushrooms at a farmers' market. I had never before seen mushrooms this big!
