Koper

V nedeljo smo se odpravili v Koper lovit sončne žarke. Na našem koncu je bilo pač temačno in sivo, tako kot že cel teden. Na obali pa sonce, najprej direktno, potem skozi oblake, a še vseeno sonce, mnogo boljše od vrhniških oblakov.

In bilo je kaj videti. Semedelsko cesto je zalila plima. Menda se to zgodi kar pogosto. Že mogoče, a jaz sem to doživel prvič.

Yesterday we decided that we don’t want to look at grey skies anymore and we took a walk on the seaside, in the Koper. There was not much sun shining through the clouds but still – we saw the sun from time to time, unlike in Vrhnika where we were looking at grey clouds for the past few days (quite a few days, actually).

We saw sea overflowing the road (actually not a road anymore, but a walkway). Locals say this happens occasionally but I experienced it for the first time.

Klopci sta nostalgično opazovali mrzlo vodo, po kateri so se vozili čolni.

Two benches were looking at the cold water and remembering the good old seventies …

Dogajal se je osemnajsti kajakaški maraton. Al nekaj takega.

There was a  still-water rowing competition (kayak and canu) going on.

Tudi na morju je mraz, zato so palme dobile puloverje.

It’s cold on the seaside, too, and even palms have to wear polo necks.

Koper je poln panojev z opisi bližnjih in malce manj bližnjih zanimivosti.

On house walls we saw lots of  panels describing local sights.

11 muzej na ulici

15 muzej na ulici

Škoda le, da je projekt izvajal »najcenejši ponudnik«, ki je v pomanjkanju slovenskih tekstov podvajal tujejezične :(

Too bad that “cheapest bidder” was accepted to do the job. On one panel the Slovenian text was replaced with the German one :(

10 muzej na ulici SI-DE

Ampak mi smo se vseeno imeli fino. Gledali smo na odprta dvorišča …

Still, we had a good time. We explored open courtyards …

12 palača

… in v prazne, a oživljene izložbe. Kar nekaj umetnikov razstavlja v izložbah opuščenih trgovin.

… and watched windows of  abandoned shops which got a new life through the works of local artists.

13 oživimo izložbe

Znašli smo se na Ulici ribjih konzerv.

We found the Cannery Row.

(“ribje konzerve” = “fish cans”)

Ko smo se vračali, je bilo morje že nižje. Nekateri so pogumno korakali med valovi …

The sea was lower when we started our walk back and some of us were brave enough to walk along the surf …

… drugi pa smo jo raje ubrali po razgledni poti.

… while others took more scenic road.

Potem pa spet nazaj na sivo Vrhniko :(

And then we returned to grey Vrhnika :(
