Crossing the Border


We went to Albania to celebrate Ruth's third birthday with some friends. They had a lovely cake made for her. We visited a castle overlooking the city of Lezhe, where Esther found a window just hear size. There were also ants which drew Ruth's attention "look at them go!" And we were amused by the goats eating leaves from the pomegranate trees.

Playing Dress-Up

What's more fun, sunglasses, or hats made of doll dresses? The girls can't decide.

More Vacation Information

 Our room had a kitchenette and a balcony with furniture so
we often made our own meals and ate on the balcony.

The hotel also had a restaurant, where we dined twice. Here is a salad we ordered the first day.

There was a semi-private pebble beach which the girls really enjoyed

In Our Hotel By the Sea

We took a short vacation in June, between Bar and Ulcinj. We stayed in the Apartment Hotel de Lara-we admit that the name was a selling point :). The Adriatic is beautiful, well worth the 10 euro extra per night for the sea view room! This is a view from our balcony window.
