Walked the 6km around the lake taking in every perspective of the little island housing the Church of the Assumption.
Came upon the rowing club!! There's a regatta here in a few days. It's quiet here now, but I know it'll be a zoo then. Emma, you'd love the clear, cool water here and the views!!
About 3/4 of the way around we met an artist nicknamed Bobi who was painting and selling his small, island themed watercolours. Quite a character he was, autographing the back and doing ink renditions of us on the back of the originals. I held the umbrella like a good apprentice and shielded the master from those drops of light rain. Apparently he loves to paint there all year no matter the weather.
Then we took a traditional pletna boat to the island that was rowed by one man--apparently not an easy feat as there's no keel. It was awkward when Dianne kept shouting "faster faster" at him (no she didn't) but he rowed to the island in 18 minutes--yes I timed it. Amazing!!
There's a flight of steps that--so the locals say--if a bridegroom carries his bride up all 99 steps, the marriage will be strong. I have no doubt Jon could have hauled me up them no problem.
Chilled out on our balcony journaling a bit and enjoying the view.
Dianne found us a great Pizzaria called Rustica just up the hill from our hotel.
The egg on the pizza was not our usual experience but Mike said he's never had a better pizza. Then "mom" helped us plan tomorrow's itinerary. Looks like she finished a lovely glass of Slovenian wine...
