Vintgar Gorge, one of our favourite places to visit. The walkway can be seen on the right hand  side of the picture.


  1. the cave shots...used to go caving all the time and find places like all the pics though...def speaks to me need to travel..ha

  2. HAPPY cow! LOL I love cows.

    And I sooooooooo wanna try that gorge walk. When I have both legs under me, of course. LOL NOTsomuch on crutches. But wow...look at that view!

  3. Really, really, really awesome photos, Valerie!

    Love the one of the church in the middle of the lake. It almost looks like a little castle!

    Also, the photos of the canals reminded me of my time visiting Amsterdam.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Happy Sunday, dear lady!


  4. What interesting scenes. I loved the black swan, saw one years ago when I lived in Toronto and couldn't stop looking at it at the time, so gorgeous!

    Hope you have a wonderful week Val. I'll be back for some MIRTH soon. ;<) I'm assuming it's a Monday regular feature?

    Hugs, G

  5. Thanks, Brian. Caves are fascinating.... and usually damp... smiles.

    Hi Geraldine. I was fascinated by the swan, the only one I've ever seen. See you Monday... grins.

    Hey Ron, I've been to Amsterdam.. Loved it. I took Joe there for a surprise big birthday long weekend. Should go again really. Yes, the church on the island at Bled was like a castle. It made a great picture scene.

  6. Great shots .... that church looks fabulous and would require a lot of time to view

  7. That's great! I love caves, especially tours in some of the largest caves. There's no sense of danger, but there's a huge sense of wonderment as you gaze upon some of the most delicate and awe-inspiring formations ever created by nature.

  8. I think I would enjoy that trip too. They are such beautiful places. After the gorge and the lake, I would have to get a new camera because of the pictures I would take.

  9. That must have been a wonderful holiday. Great photos Valerie!

  10. You're right, Herman. Caves are awesome. I particularly like the ones with lakes that you can take boats on.

  11. It looks like a fine place. I would like to see Tito's palace - I wonder if, like many dictators' palaces, it is all for show and really a bit tatty as soon as it is not brand new any more?

  12. Well, I've seen the movie 'Black Swan' never the real animal though. lol
    All your photos are wonderful. I do especially like the church on the lake one. Also, the walkway looked quite interesting.
    And caves, oh, they are really neat.
