skadar lake. we stayed in virpazar at guest house ivana . super nice and spacious, we all enjoyed the solitude and quiet. a walk into the little town, grocery shopping with ice creme was a must. some very special light at the evenings, as it was supposed to be a stormy night (which ended up not being).
a wonderful lake for kayaking, so many kinds of sea weeds and reeds and lilies. in some spots super shallow, sandy ground and great for swimming and playing in the water, the absolute best fun for the kids, even better than cliff jumping in the days ahead!
"free library" in the town of virpazar, i want one of those libraries in my neighborhood too...
pygmy cormoranst, grey heron, swifts and different species of ducks.
we visited a little monastery, just one monk lives there, has his bees, his little vineyard and a generator, some cats and a dog. a wonderful tiny chapel and a breath taking view out onto the lake a gorgeous spot of nature.
that last night we had dinner in town, fish and eel and of course fries and grilled vegetables with a wonderful dessert, something like a cake soaked in rich milk and caramel sauce topping, yummy and this all while the sun was setting.
now at home, going through the pictures and talking a lot about our adventures in montenegro, vacation lives on and it seems to be a likely country we will be visiting again.
