All To Sea

Yesterday was an impromptu trip to Slovenia's thin -- but beautiful! -- strip of seaside. Our first stop was Portorož Marina.

As you might have guessed (or already know), The Captain works in the glorious boat industry. So we stopped in to "kick the tires" on one of the new boats.

We had to wear these funny shoe covers so as not to scuff anything.

It felt good to be on a boat even though we didn't go anywhere. Ahhh sailing.

From there we were off

to beautiful (but chilly) Piran.

This is a statue of Tartini, the famous composer who was born in Piran.

I randomly saw this poster with a gyenyame symbol, my family is from Ghana and this is one of the most famous Ghanaian Adinkra symbols, what is it doing in Piran??

Piran used to be part of the Republic of Venice and it definitely feels like it, though it has far fewer crowds. In other parts, it felt like Hvar a bit.

I am obsessed with this statue

Ahh, seaside cities are the best!

The End

Awwwwwww. Great photos. Made me homesick a bit. :(

Piran is one of my favorite places in Slovenia.

Thanks for these photos. It reminded me of the day trip I made, several years ago, to Piran and Portoroz.

Seems like the book was only available until 20:00 EST on Feb 14, which was a week ago!

Herregud! Oh well...if you can send me a copy of the book per e-mail, I'd appreciate it.

@Whitney - Alas, I got the book in HARDCOPY for Christmas so it's not in emailable form...You might be able to find on a bittorrent site or something...
