A postcard from the Mediterranean

We moved, for the duration of the summer, to our seaside house at the Island Krk. We’ll come back home in the beginning  of September, so until than we’ll be enjoying sea breeze, sun and fresh air.

Trip here went reasonably well. It was a 2 hour drive from our home to here. Because of high temperatures and very busy traffic, we started our trip very early in the morning, so it was easier on both them and me. Ringo is used to traveling to the seaside, we do this every year, so she didn’t make a big fuss about it. On the other hand, this was Lino’s second trip, so he was a bit more excited, which was understandable. We had to pass through 13 tunnels, what proved to be VERY interesting to Lino, he would climb up in his cage to get a better look of the red lights passing us.

Once we got here, it took a day to get used to their new surroundings, but they are perfectly fine now. In the morning I let them out while I clean their cages, prepare their foraging toys/baskets, clean water bowls and what not, than, once back in their cages, I roll them out on our terrace and they enjoy the fresh air and sun until afternoon, when the sun shines more on the terrace, so it’s better for them to be inside. Temperatures in the sun get quite high!  Also, by that time I’m all ready to go swimming! In the late afternoon, I let them out again and they are out until dinner/bed time.

I like this arrangement because they get the best out sun and they prefer being outside than indoors.

Flowers you can see in both pictures are petunias and lavender with some silver millet.
