... is not right they haven’t got any bathers on…. Bugger me she was right.. It would seem most of the other beach goers had forgotten their swimmers but given it was pretty hot decided to swim regardless. Well that is what we decided happened anyway.

... exciting thing we saw was a protest of Bulgarians with Russian flags protesting against the U.S. About 10 people...no crowd. Just a TV camera. Stefan said they are there every Sunday and talked to them...asked about the Ukraine and Crimea. That didn't go over well. Today we just walked by!
