Pula day V - our last day

Today was our last full day in Pula. We've been downtown so PA could get a haircuts (no pix necessary as those 2mm they cut off wouldn't show anyway.. tee hee...). Since it wasn't really beach weather (raining and thunderstorms) we had lunch and went back to our apartment. Then later when the sun was back out we walked down to a nearby restaurant for dinner. The guy running it is really nice!

We were there on our first night and orderd two rounds of coke each as the glasses down here are sooo small (you get like 0.2 liters and stuff). After dinner PA asked about the pancakes and ice cream on the menu, but he didn't have any so we didn't have dessert.

Tonight he brought us BIG glasses with our drink (but we paid the regular price) and after we'd finished our food he brought us each a plate with a pancake and chocolate sauce (that was on the house). I was so impressed that he remembered and did this. Such a nice touch.

Since it's been mostly raining and yucky here are some pix from one or two days ago.

More of the neighbours kittens. This little guy ventured out onto the wide-ish but sloping edge of the fence shortly after. And immideately slipped off the edge looking rather confused. We had such a laugh!

A couple from the aquarium:
They had these "signs" several places. Rather clever.

Know what these thingies are? They are the eggs of sharks or rays (or possibly both) kept in a small tank just next to the big tank with the sharkies and rays. I remember seeing egg pods like these washed up on the shores by our cottage when I was a kid.

Tomorrow at 8 AM our boat leaves for Venice. Keep your fingers crossed for nice weather, cause then I think it's going to be a lovely trip.

Sounds like you've had a good time on your travels!

Those eggs are really wild. Mom has never seen anything like them. Cool.
And that was very sweet of the restaurant owner. I know you are a tourist, but those are the sort of things that keep people coming back for more.


Can't wait to see Venice

Mom says she's never seen shark or ray eggs before! How very interesting!
Our paws are crossed for only the best weather for you! Now can we chase the kitties?!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

The shark eggs look like something out of a science fiction movie. I can hear the creepy music now.

Your innkeeper must be very special not only to make pancakes with ice cream (yummers), but then rememer that you wanted to try them.
