Lake Ohrid

Lake Ohrid in Macedonia had us mesmerized for four days. We landed a room with a balcony, kitchen and 270 degree lake view and found it hard to abandon our balcony other than to buy food and stroll the waterfront. Well we did see few nearby churches. But even when walking a few kilometers south on the promenade we found it hard not to just find a comfy spot, sit, and admire the lake.

We mentioned her ripe cherries and the owner of a nearby hotel said "eat all you want".
