The Castle at Lake Bled
We sat in the shade looking out over this beautiful lake and tried our best to stay cool whilst we were introduced to the specialty cake of Bled. It's similar to a Vanilla Slice but ginormous, crispy and utterly delicious.

Lovely pic of Donna dipping her toes in the crystal clear turquoise lake at Bohinj
Dolores did her amazing impression of a rally driver and drove us right up one of the highest mountain passes where we were overwhelmed by the spectacular views at every hairy bend.
Here's the proof that we were 1620 metres high.
We had left our hats behind so, at over 40 degrees, emergency measures were required to protect us from the sun but, despite looking like mad English women abroad, I still got my nose burned.
The next morning a dab of lipstick to my nose scared the wits out of Donna who thought it worse than it was!!
Roasting in the sun, overlooking the mountains, we devoured the huge delicious smoked Slovenian specialty sausages, Kranjska Klobasa, for lunch with sauerkraut and crispy bits of pork.
With a huge portion of apfelstrudel for pud and another local treat, Struklji, we were so full and needed only salad for evening dinner.
The building in the distance is the restaurant where we ate our lunch!
Just read this menu....we gave the sausage in Hegs Grease a miss!
Here's the local weather forecaster. If the donkey's tail is swinging... forecast wind.
If it's wet, forecast rain..... etc.,!!!
