Miserable Weather Again!

Filed under: Travel Journal — nomdeplumage @ 9:05 pm

The weather has not been very kind to us. It is our third day here and most of it spent in doors by the fire. Wet, windy and cold it is great weather to relax, read and sleep, but not for any adventures or sightseeing. In the evenings we have had Azza, Nenad and their dog Ronnie over for dinner. Ronnie is a huge, energetic and mischievous dog. Only a year old, he barrels you down in greeting each time you meet. The third and final full day showed promise as the weather warmed up and the sun came out after lunch. About bloody time! We three decide to go for a leisurely cruise around the lake and do a little island hopping. When we got back to the cabin, Dura went to visit his friends one last time and that left Kathy and I to have some fun. With no one in sight and the weather now warm, we decided to take that long awaited swim/bath in the ever cool and inviting lake. Swimming in my birthday suit is a completely new concept for me, but for Kathy, she is very comfortable in her skin. The lake is still a little brisk, but what the hell, it was great. The best part was when it came to washing our hair. We boiled some water on the stove and brought that down to the lake. Standing partly submerged in the cold lake and then pouring hot water over ourselves, is the most invigorating experience ever. Feeling so relaxed, fresh and clean, I was so proud of myself that I had let my inhibitions down about my body and swam naked in broad daylight. We had our dinner late this evening and with our friends over for the last evening, it ended with laughs, wonderful stories and the ever presence of those damned mosquitoes.
