A Bora apparently came in after midnight. Not much wind, a good fall of rain for several hours giving the boat a thorough rinse. We made our way in rain and wind conditions to meet with Andre Proven at Vrhnika, near Ljubljana. After saying our goodbyes to Lea (who dropped Andre off), Andre acted as our guide as we toured firstly lake Bled and then the magnificent alpine regions of Slovenia. We finally left Andre to catch a train back to his home and then we drove via Italy, near Trieste, to Piran where we had a late dinner. Then back to Westralia at Portoroza. Andre was amazingly generous with his time and, despite much protest, would not let us pay for lunch.
