Sunday stroll

Or should I say drabble? It was over zero today and snow started to melt. But still a lot of it on streets, making walking somewhat troubled. Except on shady parts where it was still frozen and slippery. Perfect for breaking a bone :insane:
But still felt nice.

I went to my friend Ivana and we walked along Danube to catch some air and sun. As always, our walk ended up in cafe-pub, this time it was "Crveni Rak" :coffee: :happy:

More photos here.

    Hmm, doesn't sound like too much fun for walking. Despite wearing good hiking boots, I slipped over a number of times when we had our deepest snow of the winter (so far…) but didn't break anything.I wonder how long it would have to stay like this for the Danube to freeze over, like the Saskatchewan River!

    You live that close to the Danube, the Blue Danube Dare? That's great. One of the most famous rivers in the whole universe and it's in your back yard so to speak. I'll let you enjoy walking in that snow. Ours is all gone.

    Certainly looks slippy πŸ˜† . It's a beautiful thing, snow, though. Lovely pictures.

    Despite the cold, it looks like you had a wonderful walk. Love that little bit of color, the small red boat, in the first picture.Now the pub is somewhere I'd like to be. What a cute, warm and cozy place that was.

    Linda, Danube is as close as 15 minutes of walk from my place. Belgrade and Zemun were built around two rivers, Danube and Sava :)Adele, my grandpa told me that when he was young, it was nothing unusual for Sava or Danube to freeze over. Then a people would walk over to the other side, without having to use bridges. There were few accidents though and it was forbidden. Last time I saw floating ice on Danube was in 1984. during very hard winter.Carol :)Kimmie, thanks, it was pleasure despite everything; it was unusuačl to see that pub empty, everyone wanted to be out on a fresh air :DStar πŸ˜€ thanks :)Angeliki, thanks; what is going on in New York, more snow?Pam, everything was mostly grey andblack and white so colours were welcome to change that πŸ˜€ We were talking to the owner of pub yesterday, he said that not much photographs and stuff he put on walls is his own, usually people who are regular visitors bring something from their own houses; or he find it in flee market and buy it for a cheap price. Very nice place to be in during winter πŸ˜€

    That sounds like a great place to sit, look around and enjoy a beer or a hot toddy.

  10. gdare says:

    "Crveni rak" is our winter shelter, warm and usually crowded. During summer we go to "Galerija", another place near the Danube with a nice view on the river and bank on the other side of it πŸ˜€

  11. PainterWoman says:

    Have you done a post about that place? Or do you have photos?

  12. PainterWoman says:

    Now I could see more people inside. I must look through some of your older posts before I knew you. Some wonderful photos in them. What about the Galerija? Any photos of that? Is that the place that almost looks like a shack on the outside and has some barrels as tables and chairs to sit outside?

  13. gdare says:

    Put some photos 3 years ago. I don`t remember if I made a post :doh: πŸ˜†

  14. Spaggyj says:

    Wow, people actually left drinking for nature? I've gotta move there :lol

  15. rose-marie says:

    Nice pictures, Darko. The last one is my favourite. :DGood luck sliding around on the ice. I haven't fallen over yet this season (!), but it's only February… and not too late. :p

    Yes, that's Galerija :DKimmie, this winter has very few nice and sunny days like yesterday, so everyone wanted to catch some sun 😎 It became cold again after 2 p.m. though :left:Rose, neither did I; hopefully it will not happen this winter :yes:

    not yet,it is 0C and ice formed in the street under the snow… πŸ˜₯ they promised more snow tonight, but I do not believe it unless I see it… too many weather news lately were false!

  23. gdare says:

    Linda, have you seen her blog? It is nothing there, few photos and one of them with attractive girls and 247 comments on it. Stupidity…

  24. L2D2 says:

    Yeah, I checked it out, Dare. Another kook looks like.

  25. studio41 says:

    it was warmer here last couple of days- welcomed and refreshing… instills a bit of hopefulness into the mood

  26. gdare says:

    I started to feel tired, it always happens when weather changes from winter to spring. Of course it still looks as winter, no flowers or green leaves but changing a temerature caused this. All I want is to sleep :zzz:

  27. gdare says:

    Thanks πŸ˜€ I wrote some short stories, mostly personal ones but a novel would be too much for me. I am just not that good. But, thank you anyway :up:

  28. Abbacus says:

    The history, the architecture and land, the people and politics: everything about where you live is the stuff that great novels are made of. You should write one or two! :yes:

  29. qlue says:

    Darko, is it true the Danube is often more brown than it is blue? :left:.Still, it must be a lovely place. :up:.

  30. gdare says:

    Aadil, it depends on a colour of a sky. So it goes from blue to brown and dark grey.Blue:Grey:

  31. MizzMartinez says:

  44. SqueakeyCat says:

    Tuesday night, I wound up in the ER. Read my newest post (the longest I have ever written), that I just got up on my blog. It took me almost 12 hours to write it.

  45. Marike79 says:

    Darko, they look kinda similar but doesn't have the same atmosphere.

  46. qlue says:

    So English pubs don't smell of stale beer and cigarette smoke? :confused:.

  47. gdare says:

    Kim, I will this evening; sorry I didn`t have a time to read it before;Marike, I know what you mean.I have never been in any pub in England – I have never been in England as well πŸ˜› – so I can`t compare ours with theirs πŸ™‚
