The morning starts off with uploading pictures to the blog then down for breakfast before packing up my mags and heading out to the Ljubljana Castle sure glad I have a GPS unit LOL, drove to the top of the hill and found a parking space. A walk through the castle nice, today it is overcast so was cooler checking out the castle, then it was back in the car heading to Bled a small town about 50km. Once there I am to early to check into the hotel so I head to the Bled castle on top of the hill over looking the the town, parking at the bottom of the hill and a stroll to the top, checked out the castle nice, a small castle then others but a great view of the lake below. Back down the hill and head to my hotel get checked in I have a room with a balcony looking out over the lake very nice. Out for a walk to the lake and to get a boat to the island, the boat is a hand powered one so was a nice slow trip to the island, had time to walk around the island and to go to the top of the bell tower, there is a pendulum clock here watched as it chimed the bells. rang the wishing bell inside the church make a wish, nice then back across the lake walking around the area. Stopped for some dinner was great food was too much so had some left, and finished it off with a glass of blackberry brandy. Back to hotel and kicked back for the night, tomorrow I will be in Italy.
