This is my last post for Slovenia  which we visited in the fall of 2013.  We had such an amazing trip and are so glad we added the extra week at the end of our cruise.  We love having a car and the option of just going down back roads.
This home owner had been very busy getting ready for winter!
Beautiful mountians 
Great place to keep the firewood dry

We were heading up a mountain road and stopped when we saw this blue stream.
I do believe this is the clearest mountain stream I have ever seen!  I did not altar the picture in any way.
We really enjoy finding these small churches in off the road villages

Blet, Slovenia

September 2013 we visited Slovenia.  It is hard to believe it has already been well over a year ago!  It's true that time flies when you are having fun!

Waiting to be rowed out to the island

WARNING do not hang your hand over the side of the boat.  Swans bite.

The castle that was above our hotel

Our hotel on the lake

This beautiful Assumption of Mary Church  The church is still used for weddings but not weekly services.  

There are 99 steps up to the church.  Yes it is the only way up!  Tradition is that the groom carries the bride up to the church for their wedding.  I'm sure it makes searching for the perfect bride a harsh reality

Leopard Walking

Shadow Shot Sunday  Camera Critters  Saturdays Critters

Going through our pictures of our recent trip to Tanzania and the 8 day safari we enjoyed.  This picture just stands out as a perfect photo for Shadow Shot Sunday.  This beautiful Leopard decided to walk along the side of our jeep.  Our driver, who had done this for 7 years, said he has never seen one do this.  I just knew we were especially blessed.  

Her coat was so beautiful

This is the normal view most get to see. Can you find her?
