Lokvarsko lake

Seaside is perfect in every season but when you're a dog owner and the temperatures go sky high, the best thing to do is to pack doggy things, call friends and hit to road to the woods. 
One of the cool things about living in Rijeka is the fact that it is so well connected to pretty much every part of Croatia and beyond. That also means that Gorski kotar is less than hour away drive, in other terms - heaven.


I remember, when I was a bit younger, this part of the country didn't interest me at all. But over the years I learned to love and enjoy  the nature, the woods, lakes, caves and that feeling of peace and silence all around. 
It's the perfect spot for relaxing and recharging and I truly hope that one day (soon) we'll be able to afford ourselves a little pretty colorful house in this area (along with the one on the island...I'm so modest it hurts). But enough daydreaming and let's go back to yesterday.
We went to Lokvarsko lake (it's huge and beautiful) with Frida's little jack russell friend Lilo whose owner is our friend and also first door neighbor. How awesome, right?


The day was spent in a complete lazyness, sitting in a shade then going back to the water several times, playing with dogs, eating, walking and talking. Time flew by super fast and we almost forgot to take any pictures (!!) even though I took my camera and my polaroid and obviously iPhone with me (if you have me on Instagram then you already know how everything looked like in real time)

It also got me thinking that for adventures like these I should get me a smaller camera, because dragging around a Canon 5D Mark II with its zoom 24-105mm lens when you're around water, dogs, woods and tricky walking area is not as cool as it looks. I pretty much worry about it all the time which is a total partypooper. I guess it would be completely ok to forget about your professional work and mindset when you go somewhere fun and leave the big camera at home, right? Maybe buy a disposable one for every short trip to make even more fun?


Lilo, look at the camera, look at me!
What a poser, seriously.
It's hard to decide which one is crazier - the beagle or the jack russell. Spending time with them is like constantly being on a rollercoaster. 


Also, I'll be editing a little video from this day and share it on my long forgotten Youtube channel, maybe even tonight or tomorrow. I'm still not completely into making YT videos for blog but since it's summer and I have so many things planned, I think I'll start sharing them this way too. Fingers crossed and talk to you soon! :)

  2. Super su fotkice, ovo jezero i okolica izgleda kao mali raj na zemlji, bas savrseno mjesto za kucicu i vlastiti vrt. :)
    Ja sam isto razmisljala o tome da konacno vise izbacim vide-e na YouTube. Sve sam ih vrijedno posnimala i tu je sve stalo... Mannn!! :D

  3. koje dobro mjesto! vjerujem da su Frida i Lilo pomislili da su ušli u pseći raj, a i nama koji hodamo na dvije noge itekako dobro dođe neki takav predah....baš mi je dobra ta tvoja kombinacija, taj šešir je famozan...odlične fotografije ( i atmosfera na njima), ali slažem se s tobom da bi bilo bolje ponijeti neki manje profi aparat za izlete, na kraju krajeva ta razlika u rezoluciji i nije toliko vidljiva na običnom ekranu ili mobitelu...ja recimo kad gledam na laptopu manje vidim te neke razlike nego na računalu koje ima puno veći ekran...a na mobitelu skoro ništa ne vidim pa se uvijek moram ponovo vraćati...uglavnom, neki obični digitalni fotoaparat isto dobro posluži!

  4. Ja oduvijek nekako vise naginjem tim zelenim pasnjacima i sumama s ljubicastim kravama :) Volim ja i more ali suma mi nekako vise pase tako da razumijem da ste uzivali... u biti, mislim da je stvar u tisini... Kada sam ja na moru, uvijek je nekako guzva, zato mi je Jadran i drazi van sezone.
    Fotkice su divne ali da, veliki fotic je muka. Moja leca i nije toliko velika ali je samo tijelo isto tesko i bas mi bude nekad da pozelim mali digitalac :)

  5. Frida je kraljica, a Lilo princeza hehe :) Super mi je ova slika gdje ju pridržava nogama, haha.. i vi ste mi tako cool s ovim šeširima!
    Tako to valjda ide s godinama, i samoj mi u zadnje vrijeme više paše mir i tišina, a prije mi ne bi bilo u peti da odem tako negdje.. stari seeeeee :D Jaaako se radujem videu!
