This morning we visited a small lush place, Abkhazi Garden. This little gem has gravel trails that twist and turn among flowers, shrubs, trees, ponds, and a teahouse. Of course I had to capture some of the flowers.

Hostas, ferns and other greenery completed the picture.

Turtles presided over the ponds.

This evening we took a walk downtown. There are three cruise ships in port so the streets were crowded. One of the most unusual sights was the pedal-powered pub crawl, The Rolling Barrel. It’s a 1 ton bicycle powered by the paying passengers. The pedalers stop for  drinks and snacks at various establishments along the way.

And thus ends another day.


About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    But the story does not reveal whether you pedaled along! It certainly seems fun and a nice way to dissipate the naughty effects of alcool consumption. And thus I saw that in your present travels there is time to contemplate and time to indulge. Wow! Keep at it! Vicariously yours,

      Alas, we did not join the happy pedalers. I, for one, am too old to partake in such activities. I prefer to indulge in the conforts of our condo while looking out the window.
