Where I stayed
We then arrived and had a bit of a mission trying to find the accommodation we had booked- Andrea's home, as we had no map or directions but wandered through some beautiful little 'roads' until we found it.
Once checked in our host kindly sat us down with maps and gave us an in depth presentation of what was where, what we should see and do etc during our time here.
So thoroughly inspired n with a lot to cram in we set off in search of the lake. Only about a 5 minute walk and we were at the edge of the lake with jaw dropping sights
After taking some snaps (which do not do any justice to the scene before our eyes) we hunted out 'The Place' to get the best traditional Bled cream cake our host had so passionately described for us. And we were not disappointed. On a terrace with fantastic views over the lake and castle we ordered up 2 of the delicacies and yuuuummy! I'm not usually a fan of creamy things (excluding ice cream or really chocolaty things obviously) but this was truly scrumptious!!! Always pleased to sample the local cuisine :D
We then began the walk around the lake (to walk off the huge cake we'd just gobbled up) It's a 6.5km round trip and perfect for taking in all the views. The lake itself is crystal clear and we could regularly spot big fish or rocks on the bottom and in places it was so blue it didn't look real.
Far too inviting for a pair of water babies so we could resist no longer and got in for a good swim. A pleasantly refreshing temperature and so clear we could see the bottom for ages.
We then completed the lap of the lake and climbed up the steep cliff side up to the castle. Unfortunately you have to pay to get in (could of told us that at the bottom!) and we are stingy but we may go back again.
Bellies rumbling it was dinner time so went for a pizza place on a terrace overlooking the lake. Then got a great sunset and some even better ice cream!!! All in all a pretty fab day :)
