vacation

Sunday, August 25, 2013

I was very lazy postponing the promised vacation blog but tomorrow I start work and my mood will only decrease emoticon .
so ,as some of you already know, I went to our sea , The Black Sea, in this vacation. it's not actually black but it doesn't have that incredible blue of the Greek sea . the travel was a little long , 15 hours by train but we had one of those couchette seats so it was ok. it was sort of sort of an adventure for me cause I didn't go to the sea or sunbathe in the last 25 years ( you know the reason , I was too fat for a swimming suit emoticon ) . recently I decided to just do things and don't worry about the fat anymore ( maybe that's why I lost some weight recently emoticon ). we stayed for a week , had wonderful weather , well , in the second part there was a strong wind with strong waves and dangerous sea currents and swimming was forbidden after 3 people drowned but the wind made the heat more bearable so it was ok. I ate " normal" and luckily I didn't gain . I swam and walked a lot but I walk much more at home so it can't be that. maybe the extra emoticon explains it.
I even managed to tan a little without burning my skin. we did what I couldn't all year , wake up at 6 am , so I saw a lot of sunrises emoticon . I picked up a ton of shells , the waves were bringing tons to the shore but I only chose a few to bring back home. I even tried a few cocktails to feel more like vacation emoticon . next a few pics:

a little garden in the hotel complex (by the way , the hotel was extremely clean)

a little train to explore the place

a lake , a boat restaurant on the lake and my friend

sunrise(ignore the bottle lol)

a " nice" wave when the weather was good

different beach sunrise

angry sea

our favorite beach , empty cause it's 7 am

a cute restaurant where we ate

I hope I chose the good pics :D

    Awesome pics, Kori!!

    I think the weight loss is because you were walking on sand. It is much more strenuous than walking the hospital halls. I am glad you had a good time and got to view the beautiful sunrises.

    Looks dreamy, Kori! Thanks so much for sharing!

    I am starting to wonder if my return to awful sleep while my husband's been hurt is partly responsible for my "gain" (it's only showing as a couple of pounds on the scale, but as more like 15 or 20 in my clothes!), which does happen to be mostly be around my middle...hmm...

    Anyway, hope you're still feeling well rested and refreshed!

    Sounds like a wonderful vacation!

    Where were you on the Black Sea? I've been to Sochi and Pitsunda, years ago when it was still the USSR.

    Love the pictures and you sound like you had a fairly good time. You sound like maybe you distressed a little. Hope you have a good Sunday and the rest of the week too.
