Farewell Dinner at Pensiunea Lara

In the hills southwest of Cluj there is a valley known as Valea Ierii.  In that secluded, heavily wooded vale sits a resort named Pensiunea Lara.  Yesterday, some good friends invited me to dine with them in that special place, and thus to part from Romania with yet another new experience.

This inn is a place of beauty and grace, making creative use of the clear springs that flow endlessly from the surrounding mountainsides.  It was a super afternoon.  Here are more views of the place, and of our party.
Moni and Horațius, a handsome couple, indeed!

Nice country home seen along the road to Valea Ierii

There were shepherds abiding in these fields...

Several horses by the road were enjoying this lovely spring day.

Horațiu's new Suzuki SUV brought us all from Cluj

Were we in Hobbiton? (Guess not, no round doors in sight.)

What is this stuff on your face, Uncle Duncan?

Oh, oh!  What have we here?

My new buddy.  I wanted to tale him home!
