    There is a lot of estrogen in this house. I have my work cut out for me to try and balance it out.

    You mentioned river Una I think. Maybe the river with the best water color around. Green.

    If the place comes furnished with a tower of wine, you may have found heaven on earth!

    She said she wanted a break from the kids and wanted to go for a ride.
    The first order of business was to find her a helmet.
    So we rode into Milna to find her one she could use.
    That meant I let her us my Bell Star Carbon Fiber Helmet (no one has worn before except me)

    And I wore her sun glasses. Not the time to crash. But it was only a short ride into town.

    We find her a helmet. It was way too big for her head so we packed it with kitchen sponges to make it fit better. :-)

    [​IMG]

    We rode to Bol. They were having this graffiti party at an abandoned hotel on the coast. I want to go back to camp there. I figured if I got kicked out of her house, at least I had somewhere to go :-)

    [​IMG]

    We met one of the famous graffiti artist. Imagine that this mural was done in one day with spray paint!

    Then we had a beautiful, delicious romantic dinner in Bol. This was only my 3rd time in 2 months that I actually ate a restaurant for dinner.

    Octopus Salad and locally made red wine. Doesn't get any better than this.

    Wow!!!!
    What a different a day makes
    Going from Bivacchi and eating pasta on a wood burning stove alone in the mountains...... to this!!!!
    Almost like a dream but I have the pictures to prove it all really happened

    It is so green that it looks like a river down steam of the nuclear power plant in the Simpsons after the toxic waste spill

    I just can't believe you ate a whole restaurant, let alone 3 of them!

    Looks like a great meal, Buon appetito.

    Lady+great day out+good food+wine= you know the recipe to success.

    I can attest to all I bought the second meal with Ed and the restaurant was still standing when we left...

    IDK...but seems to me that our hero Ed is probably lining up some great stories for the next update...(like where to get the best cheese steak in Philly?) or he is enjoying the company of his host. I cant say I'd blame him one bit....in either case.
