I just finished preparing a promotional review for my e-book, Pocket Prophecies. If all goes well, it should be available on askDavid.com soon. I’m determined to have this e-book become available in print form, too. In the meantime, I’m counting on your patience.
As I wrote what I thought was a fairly good description of the book, I reminisced about the place where I was inspired to write it, a hotel restaurant complex in Bulgaria called “Ezeroto.” It’s close to the town where I was inspired to write my angel books and I thought you might like to see a few images of the place.

One of the owners, an artist and photographer, is clearly passionate about constantly improving the complex. He remodeled what used to be the open-air restaurant (behind the umbrellas, left) playing the role of construction worker in order to supervise the renovation personally. Lately, two outdoor pools were added. Here’s what one of them looks like:
The structure in the back has changing cabins. What I like about “Ezeroto”–in addition to its traditional, Bulgarian menu and refined cuisine–is the fact that it contains an animal sanctuary. There are pheasants, deer, and rabbits. The owner was able to procure the most unusual ducks that live in the man-made lake. They are multi-colored. Look at these digital images I took of one of the ducks.
Have you ever seen such a fascinating duck? It was a first for me!
The way I got the ducks to approach me was to…, you guessed it, throw bits of bread into the lake. They came, but didn’t stay long which made photographing them difficult. It would seem that they are as elusive as they are beautiful.
Next to “Ezeroto” is “Vodopad” which means “Waterfall” in Bulgarian. Here’s what it looks like:

I cannot say in words just how peaceful standing next to this waterfall was for me. All of my worries would slip into the pristine, cascading water leaving me feeling refreshed.
There’s a path that leads up from “Ezeroto” to “Gurgulitsa,” a refuge where hikers can spend the night and order a bowl of soup or hot cider, for example. “Gurgulitsa” is beautiful year-round, but hard to reach in winter when there is an accumulation of snow.
This is a picture of the view from the refuge’s balcony. You can see how thick and green the adjoining forest’s foliage is.
I visited “Gurgulitsa” many times and sat on this very balcony enjoying the view.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Thanks for stopping by.
God bless and may you see angels, Alvin Avery
