Something fishy

Since it was 4 degrees C this morning (39.2 F) here in Tuscany and amore found ice on the windshield (*gasp*), here are some summery fishy motifs from Piran in Slovenia. I knew they would come handy in the deepest winter (khmmm).

It’s surprising (not really – it’s a coastal town) how many fish and other sea beasties one may encounter strolling around Piran, even if you don’t go to the Aquarium. This summer I did plenty of that, so here is a selection of sea life, and in one particular yummy case, has-been-life. Thank you for feeding me.

Not only doors, and yet I’ve posted at least three sea food doors from here already (find one in this post), Piran is full of sea creatures on display, some more prominent, others more hidden. I wonder if I could find all of these again. Click on the first photo to enter the gallery.

    Hi MMM,
    I see you’ve been up all night hitting the”like” tab. Hope you were drinking wine. I’m getting the feeling you like my stories. Could it be true? I love that you are happy in Italy. Miss the food and life there, although some of my Italian friends tell me the place, like Paris, has changed for the worse. Is it true? Mexico is fine. Had a bad night. Ate something I shouldn’t have. Okay, hang in there and hope you and whatever animals you cradle are healthy and happy. Thanks. Duke

    1. Hey, Duke, I’m always glad to see you pop over. I’m kind of bingey, as in I prefer more posts at once. Just like a book. Great to see yours out. I’m happy in Italy indeed (these photos are from Slovenia though), but I don’t have a comparison with how it was before. Where I live there is very little of anything, except clouds, vineyards, sand and nutrias. But if you ask me, everything about this world has changed for the worse, except maybe the fact that I’m able to write this to you in Mexico. Just like that. I like the way you tell your stories even when they themselves are about dying dogs. You might be writing about that because people tend to care more about them dying than humans. Which is what we are doing. Wishing you well.

    How about the big whale on a building in Zagreb? Yes it isn’t a “fish” but, still, it swims!

    1. Good morning, Fabrizio! Can’t say that I’ve seen it. The last time I was in Zagreb was for the Waters’ The Wall show, and I only saw the terrible mall next to the venue. Did you take a photo of it? I’ve got a whale too in one of my photos. Or so it seems since it’s swallowed a boat.

  5. Was the dog turned seadog swimming with 4 degrees? It’s 20 degrees now in Lisbon, but I still managed to get a cold.

    1. Oh, Verne, good to see you around but sorry to hear about the cold. These photos are from this hottest summer, I think the sea had up to 27 degrees C this year. The 4 degrees were here in Tuscany on the morning when I wrote this post and it made me think hot summer fishy thoughts. 🙂 Is the word for shark in Portuguese also connected to a dog?

      1. Ah, I feel better for the seadog then 🙂 The Portuguese word for shark is not canine related, but has an equally weird root: “tubarão” can be translated to “big pig testicles” 🙂

    1. Oh, RayNot, I caught only one fish in my life, some 15 years ago when I was on my only sailboat holidays. We were in a place where fish were practically jumping onboard, there were so many. I caught one and then stopped because I was sorry for it. And then we ate them. :p I was never fishing as a child. One time I went with the real fishermen to fish by night by boat but we had to return because the waves were too big and I think I was sick.
