Lake Bled, Slovenia

During the first week of September, we took a trip to Slovenia.  We stayed in the South-Western part of the country, but took a day trip to Lake Bled one day, as Slovenia is a small country.  It only took an hour to get to the Lake.  (We also went to Skocjan Caves on the trip, but no photos are permitted inside, so I don't have any.  The caves were freakin' awesome, though.)

Lake Bled is pretty small, and there is a walkway built all around the lake.  So, we walked the whole thing with our family.  It took about 2 hours, with lots of stops.  I think it's about 4 miles around, but I'm not sure.  The kids loved it.  We stopped for gelato and Lake Bled Cream Cake.
We took a boat ride over to Bled Island.  No motorized boats are allowed on the lake, so everything is by rowboat.  This was a large rowboat rowed by a strong man in the back.
