August 10 – Bled, Slovenia

August 10 Rowing Lake BledAs the famous character from the Roald Dahl Classic, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (made famous by the Park Hill Players) so aptly put it: “I want Oompah Loompahs to row me about.” Well, maybe this isn’t an Oompah Loompah, but obviously we are enjoying the ride.

Here we are rowing about on Lake Bled, a lovely up-and-coming resort town in Slovenia. Think Aspen 35 years ago, sans the world-class skiing, but with world-class scenery and a serious knack for entrepreneurism. You get the picture. Lake Bled is one of Slovenia’s national treasures; the water is crystal clear and has a marked green hue, and the lake boasts an island you can row (or swim) to with a church on it. Who could ask for more?

  1. having that picture follow your wrap up of your antics with the law … I think the caption should be about making a great getaway with Theo at the oars! Miss you all and am so impressed with how dedicated you are to the blog!

  2. And speaking of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory…and families…and all: “In the end, Charlie Bucket won a chocolate factory. But Willy Wonka had something even better, a family. And one thing was absolutely certain – life had never been sweeter. ” xoxo, Katherine
