We went to the coast yesterday. We wanted to give our summer season a go. Finally. Of course, given this year's summer, it was raining in Rovinj in Croatia. So we packed our gear and went to Poreč, to another gem along Croatian coast, and spent some really lovely time with Mysterious Mister J. It was so good to see him again. Little darling, it's been a long, cold lonely winter... :) Summer is back anyway. Strolling instead of swimming didn't turn out to be a bad idea after all.

Aren't you in a big argument with Croatia over your border right now?

Jul. 2nd, 2009 10:56 pm (UTC)
We are, yes. We are even blocking their way towards the EU (we and a number of other countries, to be precise), but friendship knows no borders, right? :)

Absolutely!

I hope you can both play nice and come to an agreement so the EU can grow a bit more.... :-)

i don't want to drag this beautiful blog into politics, but....
the things that are holding croatia back from the EU even more are CORRUPTION and POOR ECONOMY. if they were nicer to slovenia, we could teach them how to be corrupt and still get into EU, but only if they are nicer.

it's not THAT big of an argument. it's like two old grandmas bickering or something.

Am I right that's it's not even over land - it's dividing up a bay or something?

Sea is also land. :)

I love these little Croatian coastal towns. One true gem after another.

Beautiful!

I should take some pictures of our harbor at night. Unfortunately I just have a point n' click. It's an excellent point n' click, but it is just a point n' click.

So share some of the views. :)

I think I will have to 'unfriend' all of my European friends - I am soooooo jealous!

Jul. 3rd, 2009 08:36 am (UTC)
Or perhaps you should 'friend' more of them? LOL!
isledemoi
Jul. 3rd, 2009 08:51 am (UTC)
Yes, perhaps that's a better idea - an so much more friendlier!
paterson_si
Jul. 3rd, 2009 09:39 am (UTC)
It wouldn't help. We would still exist. :)

Wonderful photos! (As always!)

But who is the Mysterious Mister J?
Perhaps he's just a life-sized cut-out cardboard figure? ;-)

Hold on.... let me get my fingers on some evidence. :)

i remember how lovely the Croatian coast was; i got to go to Split. Of course, it wasn't that safe back then. Have a lovely holiday!
paterson_si
Jul. 3rd, 2009 12:04 pm (UTC)
And it's very safe now. I am my only danger there. :)

Another evocative, mesmerizing series...

Is the water I am seeing the Adriatic? I am not so good at geography alas (typical Yank)...

I love how you capture the essence of that mysterious time only the French have managed to ensnare in that mystical word crépuscule ...

You show great enthusiasm, energy, and inventiveness in this medium I love so much that is LJ. And most, at this time, seem to be abandoning LJ. all the more reason for me to feel very happy to have found your Journal.

Thanks... Yes, the water is Adriatic. I guess I feel really comfortable when the day turns to crépuscule.

About my LJ... I would like it to be a happy little colourful place. Just as I would love my life to be. And I am really happy you like it. Really.
