Too hot to do pretty much everything.. except maybe for a day at sea! : )

Last Saturday we spent a lovely day  visiting the castle of Duino, with its beautiful gardens and the magnificent view on the northern adriatic coast. The whole area is also interesting from the historical viewpoint, since it is possible to see not only the beautiful inner rooms of the palace, but also the underground bunker built by Nazi soldiers during World War II. 
After leaving the castle, we followed the Rilke trail to the beach of Sistiana.

Despite the fact my bf and me have been together for more than 4 years, and that we definitely live not far from the seaside, this was our very first day at the beach together, can you believe it? : )

There were so many flowers (and a friendly kitten too)

And the whole trail is just amazing - one of the places I loved most as a child, it was great to come back!

And after a bath in the sea..

..what a better way to end the day than homecooked clams and salmon? : )

Hope you had a lovely weekend! : )

Big hugs,
